Bill begins this week's Swing show with the tune, "The Song is Ended" by vocalist Dakota Staton.  I did some online research and discovered several different references to her birth year from 1930 to 1931 and 1932.  So, I'm going with 1930 as mentioned in her 2007 New York Times obituary.  Her first album which was on Capitol, "The Late, Late Show," was a hit in 1957.  The song Bill features tonight is from her 1959 album also on Capitol, "More Than the Most."
