    My lovely wife Susan surprised me a couple of days ago with a present. It is featured here in a song from 1936. Charlie Chaplin was late in entering the Talkies in his film making. He did add music and sound effects early on. In "Modern Times" you can hear some lovely old tunes and towards the end His voice is heard singing a song for the first time on the silver screen.

    "Inspire me muse to sing of the wanderer, who sailed the wine dark sea and toppled the towers of Ilium"
    "Make a Joyous Noise"
    "Let there be song to fill the air"

    Here is a jazz standard written by Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart in 1937. This is my take on My Funny Valentine.

    Found this one today from 1929. I couldn't resist it.

    Yes! I finally managed to make a seasons video for the first time in weeks : ) 'Am I Blue' written in 1929 - I tried out a low G string for the first time too and I have to say, I really like the sound of it (oh and excuse the silly hairdo! Just washed the hair and this is an attempt to stop it drying into a frizzy tangled mess )

    The Wilton Crawley Orchestra (with Jelly Roll Morton) recorded this in 1930. Leon Redbone did it 45 years later. I've done it too, but not outside when the temp was in the mid-40s and we had a half-inch of snow early the same morning! Also, just for you Tommy, it's played on my Ohana Vita uke, which is a tribute to the Roy Smeck model.

    Great theme Tommy I love the oldies.

    I used to drink heavily with a lot of the Irish boys in London around Willesden Green and 'County' Kilburn area, the pubs didn't open until 11 am but the 'cleaner' used to let us in at 7 am and take the money until the bar staff turned up ..........I had the mother of all hangovers with some bootleg 'Poitín' one Paddy's day ............If you're offered it don't touch it, you will go blind and it will put you flat on your a$$ !! lol

    It seems everyone's trying to play the ukulele like someone else............the only real way is your own way.
