From the back cover: Dick Leibert, the leading theater organist of the country, has been playing organ professionally since he was fourteen years old. After his first job as theater organist at Loew's in Washington he toured several cities for the Loew circuit, and then spent two years at the Brooklyn Paramount. Against stiff competition from some of the country's top organists he won the audition for the permanent post at Radio City Music Hall at the time the theater opened, and his performances were soon bringing cheers from the millions who heard him there each year. At the present time, while still head of the organ staff at the Music Hall, Dick Leibert devotes much of his time to TV, radio and concert tours.
From Billboard - November 10, 1958: Here's another excellent package of organ solos by Leibert, head of the Radio City Music Hall organ staff. Selections – interpreting the LP title in its broadcast sense – include show tunes "If I Love You" etc. Movie tunes "Around The World" and danceable Latin standards "Perfidia" etc. from the ballrooms.
