Great stuff

Thanks for this! A quick bit of research shows that GI Jill was actually named Martha Wilkerson. A time magazine article from the era reports that a quarter of the mail received by AFRS was addressed to her under her GI Jill persona. Her girl-next-door delivery still appeals today, and the music kicks.

Great for a quick pick-me-up

(4 stars)

a quick batch of songs chosen by the troops interspersed with some rather lame & corny jokes. More G.I. Jive here https://archive.org/details/AfrsG.i.Jive
