      Hi, Peter,

      thanks for the boost... at least there are people out there that likes the
      music I posted.

      I only recently discovered Annette Hanshaw and Lee Morse via Youtube.... I
      liked listening to Jo Stafford, Anne Shelton, Sam Browne, Dinah Shore and
      also Deanna Durbin.... I admit they are not mostly from 20s but some are
      from 40s.

      Weintraub Synocapators - I would say they are part of the Weimar Republic
      as I do hear Jack Hylton on the station of Weimar Republic a few times so do
      Piccadilly Players.... plenty of American and British on that station as
      well as Europeans....

      For your mention of Hawaiian music, I agree but I found that there are other
      different variations of "Happy Days are here...." also "Boulevard of Broken
      dreams"..... Amazing that there are different variations of different songs
      in that time period...

      yours gratefully
