Who's Who: Vaughn Monroe

Johnny Dixon comes home from a movie and listens to the radio, which is tuned into Camel Caravan, “a musical program that did the hit tunes of the week” and featured Vaughn Monroe and other singers Johnny liked [The Curse of the Blue Figurine; 56].

Vaughn Monroe (1911-73) was an American baritone singer and big band leader popular in the 1940s and 1950s. An Ohio native, he was best known for songs such as Racing with the Moon (1941), In the Still of the Night (1939), Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow (1946), and Riders in the Sky (1949). Appearing in a handful of movies, Monroe also hosted his own variety program in the early-to-mid 1950s on CBS television.
