Sleepy Time Gal
Margaret Whiting, with Skitch Henderson

During World War 2, Armed Forces Radio produced special film and radio programs to be shipped off to the troops. They were only heard by servicemen and women, not by the general public. One of these programs was a series titled “Personal Album.” This “Personal Album” features singer Margaret Whiting, accompanied by Skitch Henderson, performing songs composed by her father Richard Whiting, including: “Sleepy Time Gal” (music by Ange Lorenzo and Richard Whiting, lyric by Joseph Reed Alden and Ray Egan, 1924).
