Frank Westphal was a bandleader in the Midwest during the early part of this century.
His orchestra concentrated on patriotic songs  and sentimental ballads, including
Westphal's own composition, 'When You Come to the End of the Day'. The immortal
Gus Kahn, whose lyrics grace such classics as 'My Isle of Golden Dreams', 'My Buddy',
'I'll See You in My Dreams', and 'The Waltz You saved for Me', wrote the words for
Westphal's melody. The mood of peace created by the song had enchanted audiences
( notes from "The Incomparable Como" Readers Digest UK compilation 1975 )
