Bandleader Hal's girlfriend Betty disagrees with his decision to stick with his music career rather than take a steady job "at the plant." She wants security before marriage, and asks famous bandleader Sammy Kaye to discourage Hal's ambitions. Instead, Sammy gives Hal an introduction to his booking agent, and Betty breaks up with Hal. Hal's band becomes successful but Betty refuses to see him. Sammy invites Betty to his television broadcast and reunites her with Hal.
