Does everyone realise that "Come Josephine" was sung in the film "Titanic"?
Excellent show

I, Colin, who is ten love listening to your show. I am a large collector of Jazz78's and love the stuff on Diamond Disks. Ross Gorman is really cool, when he does the clarinet. Me, and my dad's favorite stuff is Harry Raderman and Phil Napoleon.

Wonderful show as always! This is the best show of early recordings, both in content and quality of transfers. The Uncle Josh series from February was outstanding. I've been collecting since the late 1950's, and I enjoy hearing these recordings that are simply not available anywhere else! I've listened through most of the archived programs--only have about 6 month of 2005 to go!!
