Kenny Sargent (1906 - 1969) was an American saxophone player, singer and disc jockey. Sargent was the Casa Loma Orchestra's primary vocalist. He also played the saxophone with the band. He left the orchestra band in 1943 to begin a career as a disc jockey. He was a well known radio personality in the Dallas, Texas area at radio stations KLIF and WRR in the 1950s and 1960s. During the early 1960s, Mr. Sargent had an all-night radio program in Dallas that was sponsored by American Airlines. He would sign on every evening with the muted sound of an airliner's engines winding up and taking off into the night, followed by his verbal signature "American Airlines greets you with 'Music . . .[and there would be a long pause] . . . 'til Dawn." Then the theme song "That's All" would come on in the background while he made some introductory remarks. Frequently, and often early in the program, he would respond to a "request" to spin the recording of the great rendition of "For You" that he recorded with Glen Gray and the Casa Loma Orchestra. "I would gather stars/Out of the blue/For you, for you.
