Beautiful! Clean and great bass to treble!

I agree with Gregory, that number is Gorgeous. One of the finest in my books. Thanks. Ed Murphy, ab7bn1@me.com

Jack Benny used "Love In Bloom", the Lone Ranger used "William Tell Overature", Mr. Keene, Tracer of Lost Persons used "Someday I'll Find you", Easy Aces used "Manhattan Serenade", my wife remembers these. She never forgets! Keeps me straight!

I heard a transcription of the Jack Benny Program and it seems that for a time his theme song was

With Plenty Of Money And You -- Henry Busse and his Orchestra (1936)

Ray Noble did quite a bit of radio work in the late '30s and '40s and was the house orchestra on some of these radio shows.

There are two great numbers in their films that I like. On the trail of the Lonesome Pine and the second one's title is At the Ball or something like that. Could be "Dancing". The band is a werstern group with a great vocalist yodeling. Can some one tell me the band and the yodeler? Many thanks, ab7bn (ed murphy)

I agree Buggsy Malone is a "sleeper", the music is great as well as the entire idea. As for favorites of the 20s and 30s I think any of the Zigfield movies and Broadway Melodies are great and of course all the Fred Astaire, Ginger Rodgers movie music. The Busby Berkley productions are also clasic. ed murphy wink.gif

Currently have 638 songs on it using 3.7 gb and have 3.0 gb additional available for more stuff. The apple stores have a free help desk and the guarantees are great. understand it works with Macs and Windows computers. I love it. biggrin.gif Ed Murphy, ab7bn

If I ever get tired of the movie Singing In the Rain and the music I will know I have grown old. However, I need help! One of the short clips in the film is of a male singer backed up by a group of girls. He only sings a line or two of each song. Beautiful Girls which was sort of a calendar girl type. He had a great voice and I wonder who he was and what songs he might have recorded. I know the question is kind of vague. Can Anyone identify the guy? Many Thanks, ed murphy, ab7bn@earthlink.net

I have just read the emails about Yo Yo's passing. It has taken me almost 6 months to see the sad news. I agree with the comments of the others that nothing is so bad that suicide is called for. Perhaps it is my being old, not in my mind though, or perhaps having seen so many friends pass away, or perhaps having seen and seeing today young lives snuffed out by wars and violence, that I can not imagine things getting to the point that one gives up living. There is too much to live for. The opportunity to listen to beautiful music, to read great poetry, to read wonderful literature,(for me it is always Treasure Island), the opportunity to learn about the world and its peoples, the chance to meet new friends, the chance to hear new ideas and to exchange yours, these are opportunities that we face every day no matter what. Don't ever give up living! No matter the reason. ed murphy

Lots of interesting comments about why this period, clothing and music is attractive to many of us. In my case my youth was in the 30s and 40s but the music was still from the 20s in many cases. Youth was great (although it still is at 77) but life was simpler, less hectic, and people seemed to be more relaxed and friendlier. Respect for the older folks, men removed their hats in elevators, held doors for ladies etc. We were taught the same thing in the Marine Corps in those days. The short haircut was called a "Crew" cut in those days. College guys started it in this country although in Europe it was common in the military then.
I too like the clothing of that era and when I look at photos of my parents I long for a pair of white flannel trousers which were worn with sport coats and bow ties then. Thanks to all for the great comments. Semper Fidelis, ed murphy

biggrin.gif Count me in as a fan of Jack Benny, Fibber Magee and Molly, the Charlie McCarthy show, Burns and Allen and so many other fine radio shows of that time, my youth. I agree with most critics that Jack Benny had superb timing and a wonderful dead pan expression. One of his good movies was "The Horn Blows at Midnight", a mystery movie. I do hope I got the title correct. Also thanks for thei info about the book. It is now on my must read list. Cheers, ed murphy

Thanks for the info, Gregory. I spend a lot of time hiding out in San Diego when Yuma starts to cook during its summer. I will visit that spot for certain. ed

I am enjoying every topic on Dismuke's Baord. Like Ian I am a coffee nut too and an old car nut, Flapper Girl's comment about chains during the snow days brought back memories of a lot of struggles to get them on in the cold. One of the things I remember well was that they always had one of the side chains come off due to a broken link. Then there was a constant bang as that loose chain went round and round. With two broken links, on two different wheels there was a distinct beat to the sound of passing cars. Frequently they were not fixed and you could recognize your parents approach or a passing neighbor by the distintive beat. I dont hear it much out here in the desert of Arizona. ed murphy

biggrin.gif Hi Ian and others, My wife just showed me a book entitled , "Gong To The Fair". A Preview of the New Yortk Wolds's Fair 1939 Together With What You Should Loopk For and W@hat You Should See In The City Of New York. Ian, do you have a copy of this or have you seen it? If not I will be happy to get a copy made and send the original. (My wife said that is OK) It might be a while as I am taking a trip the end of this month so it would be when I get back.
The General Motor's Pin stating "I have seen the future" reminds me that at his point having seen the fair and a lot of history, I may get one saying "I have seen the past!"
Ian as to Korea, yes, I was there twice. Once as an Infantry 2d Lt with the 1st Marine Div. and 18 months later as a Fighter Pilot. Viet Nam flying choppers. "Flying Beats Walking!!! Semper Fidelis, ed

Ian, I enjoyed seeing your post of the emails and must express my thanks for the illustratioins you added to this site. I particualrly enjoyed the photos. At long last, after almost 70 years since I visited the Worlds Fair in New York, I got to see what I missed when they would not allow me in to see "The Doves" and Rosita Royce so many years ago. Semper Fidelis, Ed Murphy

What a great web site and what a wonderful group of folks who use it. Many many thanks for the info on George Formby and the Washing Windows song.
As a mature listner (77) I do love the music and songs of the 20s and 30s. And of course the music from the 40s too. Lots of memories from my Marine Corps Days and dating my wife then. She heard the Washing Windows song first and loved it. Thanks Gang, Semper Fidelis, ed murphy
