Sounds right Julian.  Dorsey broadcast from  Dallas for Ford V8  during the 
Texas Centennial Exposition in August of 1936.
I have a couple of those broadcastst but unfortunately no "Dancing With 
You".on either one. There were obviously others.
My "Dancing With You" came from a radio station and as you indicated they 
probably got it off either the Jasmine or
Fanfare LP. A very obscure incident and I'm happy that you dug it out. I can 
sleep again.
