Nonsense and Melody - Pgm 28

May 13th, 2010

Let's drop in again on the gang of "Nonsense and Melody", a quarter-hour of comedy and music syndicated by Transco, recorded in the Freeman-Lang Studios in late 1934.

Transcription label

Program 28 in the series kicks off with Johnny Kiado, the "Accordion Wizard", performing his composition, "Accordion Rhythm".  Bernadine Miller sings "A Needle in a Haystack" and the band performs a "Blue" medley.  Hosts Frank Gill, Jr. and Bill Doemling perform in a sketch called "The Steamship Murder Case".  The Three Jack Tars perform "Or Were You Fooling?"

The show was digitized from an original red vinyl Bruce Eells and Associates - Broadcasters Program Syndicate transcription pressed in the 1940s.
