Cal Stewart: "Uncle Josh"
Cal Stewart - "Uncle Josh"

One day I found a cylinder by Cal Stewart. "Cal who"? I already had a pretty warped sense of humor, and "Uncle Josh Buys An Automobile" (BA 1583) was the last step in molding it! I had to find more works by this artist.

Along the way I found an LP of some of his performances on Edison diamond Disc records; some of these may correspond with dubbed Blue Amberol recordings:
