Episode 3

What a mix of Forgotten and little played songs and artists and all on 78s. We go back to the early years of the 20th century in this hour. Harry Cove, who sang under at least another 20 names, pops up twice. Under his own names and as Ted Yorke, singing ‘Its a long long way to Tipperary,’ 1914. We have Sandy McGregor from 1912 and his rendition of ‘Maggie frae Dundee.’ Very early country from the 1920s- Bud and Joe Billings and Carson Robinson. Cliff Edwards, Ukele Ike, on a lovely Artuelie lable record. Edwards was the voice of Walt Disney’s Jiminy Cricket. Woolworth’s own Victory record label and the very appropriate song ‘The girl from Woolworth’s.’ Also playing The International Novelty Quartet, Pee Wee Hunt, Layton and Johnston and Society Cafe Orch.
