I've Got a Gal in Kalamazoo

Benny Goodman on Swing City Radio

I've Got a Gal In Kalamazoo by Benny Goodman?

Everyone remembers the Glenn Miller version of "I've Got A Gal In Kalamazoo."  And rightfully so!  The song was a mega-hit for Glenn Miller and His Orchestra and appeared in the movie "Orchestra Wives."  But did you know that Benny Goodman recorded a version of the song as well?  You can hear this version of the song right here on Swing City Radio but I've included a video below so you can enjoy it right now!

The vocals on the song are handled by Dick Haymes and was one of a handful of titles sung by  Haymes at his only  recording session with the Benny Goodman band.  Their version was recorded in June of 1942.  Enjoy!
