An exciting new development this week with The Talking Machine’s first ever guest interview (unless you count my dad, which I don’t).

And of course we listen to another record from the collection; this week’s selection is Victor 18473 featuring “Smiles” and a medley of “Rose Room” and “My Oriental Rose” Performed By Joseph C. Smith’s Orchestra. Also: The music festival I didn’t go to.
