Happy Feet Friday

From the old Jubilee radio program - live music broadcasts which primarily targeted African-American troops during WWII - here's Elmer Fain and his orchestra performing "Pick a Rib". There's very little information on Fain available on the internet. He was apparently a saxophone player and a sometime musicians union official, but beyond that, I haven't been able to find very much.

Paco, thanks for broadening my musical and historical knowledge in such a wonderful way!

Glad you liked it. I like to highlight forgotten musicians when I can.
