Songs of Saturday ~ The Umbrella Man

any umbrellas to mend today?

On a day about umbrellas, courtesy of Paula Light;

I just couldn’t resist this Flanagan and Allen song.  So English from 1939, just before war broke out.

You don’t get many double acts like that these days.

Just as well really.

  1. love this!!! Wonder if dad had this on a 45? It would be perfect in one of the jukeboxes. The older Wurlitzer.

    1. You could have a 30s and 40s jukebox.

      1. This house has two right now. A 56 that has older tunes in it and a more modern one probably from the late 60’s to early 70’s. That one does not yet play well. One is a Wurlitzer and the other is a Seeburg, I think. There is another 64 Wurlitzer and another Seeburg at The Craftsman’s mom’s waiting to be used. They are much fun. Lots of lights and cool bits of mechanisms.

        1. I love mechanical things. If I ever build my dream home it will have a Wurlitzer juke box in it. And a big bed suspended off the floor like a giant love-swing. ❤
          And a wood fired boiler for winter heat and all-year hot water. 😉
