Description: Phil turns on the radio (using the dials) and we hear pleasant background music for the next scene (a love scene); the song is "My One Ambition is You" (from the movie Dixiana, which was one of the first films orchestrated by Steiner at RKO); first we hear the verse, then the chorus (played twice), then a piano interlude that leads to a more upbeat statement of the chorus featuring muted trumpets; near the end, the lead female character responds to the music, smiling and moving in time; soon after, two other characters begin dancing to the music in the other room
On-screen: Phil turns on the radio
