Subject: [aloha-donblanding] Song co-authored by Blanding
Wake up sleepyheads!
I was poking around in the catalogue of copyrights and stumbled on the following entry in the musical compositions section:
Words by D. Blanding, music by Leo Friedman [of U.S.]
Chicago, Ill. North American Music Pub. Co.
Jan. 15, 1920; 2 c. Feb. 2, 1920; E 472133; Donald Blanding, Rockford, Ill.
Perhaps not a major discovery, but something more to add to Don's extensive resume.
I wonder if it was a song which appeared in a musical revue he worked on...perhaps for the Art League of Rockford.
Leo Friedman was a somewhat famous composer of his day.
