This AFRS-produced program was a “disc-jockey” format, where a host (or hostess, in this case) played recordings, by request from people serving in the armed forces. The show title is taken from the Johnny Mercer song “G.I. Jive”.
The hostess of these shows is Martha Wilkerson, who went by the name “G.I. Jill” on the show.
All episodes of this series we have were all in fair shape, but we decided to offer them here because they are not known to be available in a digital format for listeners.

Who sings Besame Mucho? She announces it as what sounds like “Carneen”, searching doesnt find anything, maybe it’s a weird spelling?
I’ll have to give this another listen, Dan, to see if I can figure it out.
I have an original, I think. Is it worth anything? Just curious.
We don’t have any way of evaluating discs, ourselves. We usually just look on auction websites to see how much things are selling for. Sorry.
