Of all 78rpm music who is your favorite storyteller? IMO Frank Crumit is at the top.

David Bispham. Primitive recording and all, I have yet to hear an account of Erlkonig that could touch his projection of the various characters.

I really like Lyn Harding.

I particularly like listening to his rendition of 'Gunga Din'.

Oh, Music !

Then it has to be Jack Train - I really like listening to his 'The Lord Of The Blooming Manor' !
