I think there's probably some around, but I think you'd be looking for one hit wonders or lesser recording artists?Governor Flyball wrote: It looks like the era has passed with hardly a whimper.
Most of the popular big names with career's before 1948 who were young enough then to still be alive, were probably ask to record something for the new microgroove format if the record companies thought there was a chance to sell more records.
Perhaps a child star from the 1940's?
I thought maybe Bobby Breen might be alive but we lost him in 2016.
Be much easier to compile a list of pre 1959 78rpm era only stars still alive, and I think that would be quite a long list.
I think the last on that list in years to come might be Gayla Peevey, at currently 77 yrs young,
Even Patience and Prudence made a couple recordings in the early 60's, and Brenda Lee of course had a pretty significant career throughout the 1960's.
However Gayla's last recording was in 1958.
Another artist who made her last recording, again in 1958, was the gorgeous Jane Powell.
And I must say, she's still as sexy as ever at 91.
