On June 21, 1952, Stanley Wickman, member of the Make Way for Youth chorus, was getting married. Don Large had the UD Chorus sing “a capella” at this wedding. At this time, Don Large was also the director of the Make Way for Youth at WJR.

Mr. Wickman said, “Ours was a double wedding. The other bride was my wife's sister now deceased. The other groom (now deceased) was a sound engineer at Ford Motor Company World Headquarters. He persuaded his boss to help him set up the church and watch over the recording. The chorus was in the balcony at the back of the church probably 60'-70' from the microphones.”
