Lester Lanin was a bandleader famous for long medleys. I admit, I'd never heard of him before I picked up this 1958 album.
It's OK for dancing, you might say. And these are definitely woven-together medleys!

... Although what the album's name has to do with its content, I can't fathom. We have the album title, and a cover photo of too-old "college" students, but ... how this idea intersects with the musical program, is beyond me. Somebody school me!
