Reminiscin’ with Singin’ Sam - Pgm 107

August 27th, 2009

Singin' Sam returns this week with another quarter hour of "oldies" your great-grandparents might remember from the turn of the last century.

In program 107, the first song is an upbeat version of "I'll See You in My Dreams".  Then Sam gives us the forgotten songs "When the Poppies Bloom Again" and "I've Got Rings on My Fingers (And Bells on My Toes)", and wraps up with the old standard, "My Wild Irish Rose".

Our program was transferred from original Transcription Sales, Inc vinyl disc, matrix number L-19688-A1.  The disc was in pretty rough shape and has been run through some de-clicking software to clean up the sound.

Be sure to check out the comments for "Singin' Sam", program 104 in the blog.  Listener Jim Widner offers up some corrections to my bio of Harry "Singin' Sam" Frankel in the post and some additional information on his life and career.

    I have just discovered this series and artist and look forward to finding more. It’s a nice break from the usual dance/rhythm stuff of this era. And I’m just over the moon about 15-minute music shows. Thanks!

    He seems to have done another series called REFRESHMENT TIME WITH SINGIN’ SAM that I am now on the prowl for.
