An exciting new development this week with The Talking Machine’s first ever guest interview (unless you count my dad, which I don’t). We talk to Joseph Rubin from the Ted Lewis Museum (www.tedlewismuseum.org) and hear some rare Ted Lewis recordings from his radio days. 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.
