day, Feb. 5, first made a noise with
a trumpet in Cleveland at the age
of five, but nowadays that "noise"
is referred to as "Be-bop," and
Anthony refuses to have anything
to do with it.
The bandleader, who favors
danceable music, says he will have

that are associated with "bop."
"The young musicians make ter-
rible sounds with their instru-
ments," he complains.
ANTHONY has led his band to
the top position on a nation-wide
disc jockey poll, not by "distorted

The Navy's morale division
chose Anthony to form a dance

bases, and in three year's time
he and his Navy band covered
Pearl Harbor; Okinawa, Guam,
Midway and Tarawa.
Upon his discharge from the
Navy in 1946, he formed his pres-
