December 27, 1939: CBS Airs 'The Glenn Miller Show'

 
December 27, 1939: CBS began airing the 15 minute, twice a week Glen Miller Show. Sponsored by Chesterfield cigarettes, the show was commonly referred to as 'Music that Satisfies' and was broadcast for more than 3 years.

Initially, the band was a featured artist during a 15-minute broadcast for Chesterfield cigarettes with Andrew Stevens three times a week. Later on, the band starred on their own show until 1942.
