Re: Blanding musical program
- Tom and tj,
I should get the Hula Moon program in the mail in the next few
business days. I can make a photocopy for you guys.
Incidentally, I also have a photocopy of Don's first Junior League
show program, Tropics Topics, that a friend of mine sent me a few
years back. It's about 20 pages long. I'll dig that up as well.

Hey Keith, thanks for the offer...I'll take you up on it. I'm going to review my videotape and get the particulars of what my chorus line show girl said. I think I'll email the Carmel Heritage Society and see if she might still be with us. If so, she would really get a kick out of seeing a copy.....tj

Congratulations on finding the Hula Moon program, and the Tropic
Topics program for that matter.
Now all you need is the one for Dream Girls!
This past 4 months has been especially difficult for me and I have
not kept up with transcribing the material from the Star-Bulletin.
Earlier this week I finished reading both 1925 and 1953; the next
batch will be from 1954.
Among the piles of S-B stuff I have a number of articles about Hula
Moon, Tropic Topics and Dream Girls. I believe the articles contain
extensive lists of cast members and program details.
I will try to get started again on transcription, and organizing the
material into easily accessible binders and a database. My plans
were sidetracked by the illness and death of a close friend and now I
have some 30 boxes of collectibles from her estate to inventory and
sell. My living room looks like a warehouse, and just now I'm not
even sure where my Blanding files are!
But I will try.
Here are the songs from the two musical programs that I have.
Blanding collaborated with R. Alex Anderson on both shows.
TROPIC TOPICS REVUE, June 3-4, 1925:
Deep Sea Fox Trot - music by Anderson
Spinster's Son - lyrics by Blanding, music by Anderson
Girl of My Dreams - lyrics by Blanding, music by Anderson
Aloha Land - words and music by Anderson
I'm a Derelict - words and music by Anderson
Artist Song Girls - words and music by Anderson
Song of Types - lyrics by Blanding, music by Anderson
Golden Shower Girl - lyrics by Blanding, music by Anderson
HULA MOON, May 2-4, 1928
Overture - music by Anderson
Hula Moon - lyrics by Blanding, music by Anderson
Haole Hula - music & lyrics by Anderson
The Rocking Chair Fleet - lyrics by Blanding
Why Kihi-kihis Swim Home - lyrics by Blanding, music by Anderson
Medley from Tropic Topics - music & lyrics by Anderson
Song of the Lei - lyrics by Blanding, music by Anderson
Good-Bye, Honolulu - music & lyrics by Anderson
Choosing Her Twosing - lyrics by Blanding, music by Anderson
My Flower of the Rainbow - lyrics by Blanding, music by Anderson
So Anderson did indeed completely write Haole Hula, as history
states. I wonder what happened to some of the other songs through the
passing of time.
- Thanks Keith
I was wondering for a long time about Haole Hula. It was too much like
something blanding would write.
