Just a reminder that the Scratchy Grooves web site has been updated  
with more "old" music.

The music consists of radio shows, hosted by the late Bill Chambliss  
on the University of Delaware radio station. He broadcast one hour per  
week of wonderful music for 19 years, starting in July of 1984.

The music from the years 1900 to 1940. And the recordings are all from  
his personal collection. His son is converting them to listenable mp3  
format and providing them FREE to interested listeners.

One of my favorite programs, which I heard live in 1988, are the "Who"  
songs, Show number 144. They include "Who" by Benny Hale (1926), "Who  
Cares" by Al Jolson (1922), "Who Cares Where You Have Been" by Helen  
Morgan (1925), "Who Played Poker With Pocahontas?" by Al Jolson  
(1919),  Who Threw The Overalls in Mrs. Murphy's Chowder and other Who  


Don Ingle might like these shows as they will give him something to  
listen to during  the upcoming cold winter in Michigan. Sip a single  
malt, relax and listen to songs and bands you won't hear anywhere  
else. See show # 135 Don, "Red Nichols & Ben Pollack".

Bill was a really dedicated musicologist and a wonderful guy. I got to  
know him in the 1980s and he even played a couple of Barbone Street  
songs on his show in the 1990s.
