Buddy Weaver Music is the copyright owner of Blue Star Records.  Some episodes of this podcast will be presenting the Blue Star Records album collection.  Here is BS 1005 "Andy Andrus Calls 'Em Sensational"

Incorrectly identified in the podcast (should be Blue Star 1005), this long play album was released in May 1963 for dancer's home practice.  Some of the calls used are no longer in square dancing today so listeners have to do some research before dancing.
