His big break came a few years after he
took over the leadership of a 10-piece band
in California.  He was a logical choice to be
the new front man, since, besides playing
saxophone and clarinet, he was handsome,
sang a little, and could m.c. a floor show.
In 1939, Foster and his orchestra were
hired for two weeks at the Biltmore Bowl, a
hotel in Los Angeles, but wound up staying
there seven months.
They went back in 1940 and ‘41, for a total
of 18 months time!  During that period, they
made lots of network radio broadcasts.
