Alec Morison, Your Magic Minstrel - Audition

January 19th, 2019

Following up on a post from last week, here’s another attempt by vocalist Alec Morison at an audition program.

Alec keeps it simple in this audition, accompanying himself on guitar.  The first song is “Guadalajara”.

I’ve done quite a bit of Googling and still can’t come up with anything on our featured performer.  Perhaps he was one of many nightclub acts that tried to break into radio and was just never able to get there.  The show was put together by Advertising Business Associates - I found them in the 1949 edition of the “Broadcasting Yearbook” with an address of 6912 Hollywood Blvd., Hollywood.

Our show was transferred from an original one-sided lacquer from Universal Recorders in Hollywood.
