B1163. ROBIN MOORE. Arthur Fiedler – the Colorful Mr. Pops – the Man and his Music. Boston, Little-Brown, 1968. 372pp. First Edition. Exhaustive Discography; Numerous Photos; DJ.
“This tells how Fiedler inveigled his way to the podium and got through union wangles; was reinstated after being fired, instituted the country's first Free Concerts and managed to become the Ed Sullivan of the genre--something for the whole family in what became such an American Institution that Tokyo Rose used Fiedler and the Pops as her theme music. This book is so crammed with incidentals, you can barely keep track of the score.”
