No Journal published Dec. 26, 1930

No Journal was published Friday, Dec. 26, 1930 following Christmas. Didn't get around to doing a blather today, so I'll be content with another:

Forgotten genuises dept.:

This one is Ruth Etting, who had over 60 hit songs in the 1920's and 30's. One of her signature tunes, the sad and funny Ten Cents a Dance:

Another signature song of hers that really shows her voice off, also performed by many other singers, Love Me Or Leave Me:

And one of the first recordings of Ain't Misbehavin':
