In an interview with this writer, Vallee was talkative and witty and courteous while controlling the flow of the talk, acknowledging his contributions as a talent hunter while laughing off the suggestion that posterity was at all enriched by the preservation of his old shows. He died July 3, 1986.”
― John Dunning, On the Air: The Encyclopedia of Old-Time Radio

“But almost from the beginning, Vallee’s special ability as a talent scout came to the fore. He plucked Alice Faye out of the chorus in George White’s Scandals and sent her to vocal and film stardom. He found Frances Langford singing on a small station in Florida. Beatrice Lillie, Milton Berle, and Phil Baker got their first major radio exposure on the Vallee show.”

One Final Bonus – John Dunning Quote 

“Carol would not be a bad one to [settle down] with. She’s pretty and bright, and maybe this is what love is. She’s good company: her interests broaden almost every day. She reads three books to my one, and I read a lot. We talk far into the night. She still doesn’t understand the first edition game: Hemingway, she says, reads just as well in a two-bit paperback as he does in a $500 first printing. I can still hear myself lecturing her the first time she said that. Only a fool would read a first edition. Simply having such a book makes life in general and Hemingway in particular go better when you do break out the reading copies. I listened to myself and thought, This woman must think I’m a government-inspected horse’s ass. Then I showed her my Faulkners, one with a signature, and I saw her shiver with an almost sexual pleasure as she touched the paper where he signed. Faulkner was her most recent god[.]”

― John Dunning, Booked To Die
