Frank Crumit sings about Prunes. Not too many song about that shrivelled up fruit! A local record from 1934, ‘Tam O Shanter,’ recorded live in George Street Edinburgh. Billy Cotton, Ossie Nelson and their bands. We finish with a superb version of Frankie and Johnnie from Jimmie Rodgers. There are others of course.
