My husband's grandparents, Papa and Mimi, will be celebrating their 70th wedding anniversary in May. Yes, 70th anniversary!!! The family is throwing an anniversary party for them and one of the party tasks I'm working on is music.

Papa and Mimi have requested some Sinatra, Tony Bennett and other standards. What I'm now looking for are some pointers on instrumental music and songs that were well recognized then that I may be overlooking now. I would also love some pointers on songs from movies of that era.
Please don't feel like anything would be obvious... I'm in my early 30's and not well educated on music from the 40's or 50's or anytime really!
Papa and Mimi are from Idaho and lived in Southern California during WWII when Papa was in the Army. Mimi used to sing on the radio with her sister when they were young and really loves to sing.
They are the best grand and great grandparents and have a big family who loves them a TON. Seriously, getting them as extra grandparents was a huge bonus for me when I married their grandson!
Thanks for the help!
