A. –Pete Kelly's Big 7. Till We Meet Again. Written-By – Raymond B. Egan, Richard A. Whiting.

We'll Meet Again" is a 1939 British song made famous by singer Vera Lynn with music and lyrics composed and written by English songwriters Ross Parker and Hughie Charles. The song is one of the most famous of the Second World War era, and resonated with soldiers going off to fight as well as their families and sweethearts. The song gave its name to the 1943 musical film We'll Meet Again in which Dame Vera Lynn played the lead role (see 1943 in music).

Whilst she again admitted it was she who had shot the two people, she refused to give her name and address, and her down-and-out appearance was curiously at odds with her soft voice and dignified bearing. I was so scared,’ she said, beginning to cry again. I’ve worked here for fifteen years, and nothing like this has ever happened before. Longhurst had been told that when the armed squad came into the centre, Muriel was still cowering under the reception desk, just feet away from the other woman’s body.

In 1927 Kansas City Pete Kelly and his jazz band play nightly at a speakeasy. A local gangster starts to move in on them and when their drummer is killed Kelly gives in, even though this also means taking the thug's alcoholic girl as a singer. Kelly soon realises he has made a big mistake selling out in this way and that rich girl Ivy is now the only decent thing in his life. Written by Jeremy Perkins {J-26}.

Pete Kelly was a musician, a cornet player who headed his own jazz combo, "Pete Kelly's Big Seven. They worked at 417 Cherry Street, a speakeasy run by George Lupo, often mentioned but never heard. Ella Fitzgerald makes a cameo as singer Maggie Jackson (a character played by a white actress in the radio series). Lee Marvin, Martin Milner and a very young Jayne Mansfield also make early career appearances. Much of the dialogue was written by writers who wrote the radio series Pat Novak for Hire, (1946-1949) and the radio version of Pete Kelly's Blues (1951), both in which Webb starred for a time before creating Dragnet. Jazz cornetist Pete Kelly (Webb) and his Big Seven are the house band at the 17 Club, a speakeasy in Kansas City in 1927 during Prohibition.
