Found an Alan Young interview with him talking about a date with Marilyn in 1946. You can listen to it here...

'The Alan Young Show, a date with Marilyn Monroe, and meeting Mr. Ed
In this segment, Alan Young reflects upon his childhood years, his days as a teenage radio host and entertainer, and the Emmy-Award winning "The Alan Young Show." Mr. Young also recounts the details of his first date with Marilyn Monroe.' (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

http://www.worldtalkradio.com/archive.asp?aid=1952


Here is some more info where Young talks about the bagpipes (in the photo with Marilyn).

"You can even purchase a publicity still where I was teaching Marilyn Monroe (then Norma Jean Dougherty) how to play the bagpipes. Thats Bill Thompson with us. He was the first Scrooge McDuck in the forties. Norma and I dated a little, but evidently neither the bagpipes nor I hit the right note." (07-2006)

Listening to his interview, we have more background into this event with Marilyn on the float for that Christmas parade promoting the Allan Young Show, November 1946.

Bits from that interview...

"I had this radio show, and every year they had this parade. I went to the casting director at Fox to help me out. Said they would help with six beautiful blonde girls for the float and people won't look at anybody else. Six beautiful blonde girls on my float, and one of them was Norma Jeane Dougherty. She was very quiet and very shy, and I was very shy. When the parade was over I asked her if she'd like to go for a cup of cocoa with me. We dated a couple times."

(Impression of Marilyn)

"She was delightful. She was a real nice girl. Plain down to earth."

(Did you have an incling that she would become the superstar that she ultimately did?)

"No way. No. There was so many blonde startlets at Fox at that time. Betty Grable was the big star, and they had several others they were building up. And she was in that stable, I figured she might work, or might not."

QUOTE
These bagpipes come from the original owner himself, Alan Young!
Born Angus Young in the United Kingdom and spending his boyhood in Scotland, it was only natural for actor Alan Young to take up the bagpipes. The actor, perhaps best known as Wilbur Post on the classic sitcom Mister Ed and as Filby in The Time Machine, purchased this specific set of R.G. Lawrie pipes in the mid-'40s. He first used them as part of his stage act while touring America with Liberace. (After the last show of the evening, the two would play together in the theater bar.)
Soon after, during his stint as the host of the Alan Young Show on radio , Young was asked to pose for a publicity photo with the pipes and a pretty girl. Young asked a former date of his named Norma Jean Baker to do the honors. By this time, she had changed her name to Marilyn Monroe and had started an acting career of her own, but was more than happy to return the favor.
The pipes, straight from Mr. Young, feature the Gordon tartan and ivory mounts -- a valuable feature since ivory is no longer legal to harvest. They are in Fine to Very Fine condition with some chipping and wear.

You can see below in the photos how big of a parade that was, with all the lights up in the dark of night. So beautiful. I'm guessing MM had a great time being part of that in her hometown Los Angeles. In one of the clippings, it says 'A million persons turned out to see the trees and a parade featuring film and radio stars'.

And in the newspaper clip (1946-11-30) The Falls Gazette, I am pretty sure the girl sitting down on the ground is Norma Jeane! I blew it up, and if you compare her hair and clothes to the one in the float, it looks like her.

Norma Jeane's 1st newspaper photo since signing with Fox Studios. That I have in my collection. Could be wrong.

We don't know what this float is or how NJ is connected to it. Just my opinion that's her.

NJ wore the beret at night during the parade. This is obviously during the morning or afternoon. Again, we don't know if NJ was around other floats. We have no backstory of her time there. Alan Young in his interview years later, said he recollected around 6 girls he hired from Fox. If you count the girls (their shoes), you will seven. One to the left of NJ, her legs and top is somewhat mixed in the background of the float, but you can see her shoes.

My point is 7 girls, and Alan recollected around 6. NJ is wearing the same white sweater, and dark skirt in the only known photo of her on the float with a sign. If im the only one who can see Norma Jeane's hairstyle and expression on her face, then I am the only one.

Hello. Pottering around, stuck at home during the COVID-19.
I found this photo of the Santa Clause Lane float on Getty Images (you can find it bigger there - I had to resize it in order to get it to upload here).
The original caption reads: 11/29/1946-Hollywood, CA- Santa Claus is surrounded by a bevy of scantily clad movie starlets as his $25,000 "sleigh" moves down "Santa Claus Lane," in Hollywood.
I can't see Marilyn in the photo :(

I was looking at other photos of Marilyn around that time, and can't find any of her wearing similar shoes (sling-backs), so I am not convinced the woman with her head turned from the camera is Marilyn.

Marilyn rode on the float representing The Alan Young Radio Show, with other Fox starlets. He viewed her from a window as the float passed by and noticed Marilyn because she smiled more than the other starlets. Afterwards some of the cast member of his show, and Alan Young, with the starlets go to the Brown Derby. He spends the evening talking with her. He invites her to a cocktail party the next night at Conrad Janis' home. They go to the cocktail party together.
