LUISE KING
THOSE SWINGING YEARS

Order this 1983 autobiography on amazon directly from JonARey Studios (Luise and Alvino's son).

This is the story of those fabulous years when Americans sang and danced their way out of a depression, fought a war with pride - and - listened to the music of the big bands. This is the story of a country girl and her sisters who where thrown into the jungles of the big cities, and with their freshness and love of life, charmed the wealthy clientele who came to hear them sing. This is a love story of a young girl and her musician sweetheart, who despite the grueling one nighters, the Hollywood scene, and the hectic life of working together for forty-five years of marriage. This is a story of a loving, large family, rising above disappointment and heartache to become "the first family of television." And - this is a slice of Americana that will tug at your heart strings. To "the not so young," it will bring back unforgettable memories. And to the young, it will "tell is how it was" in those fabulous, swinging years.
