Billy Bishop - Challenge 308, Gennett 6203

Billy Bishop - Challenge 308
Medley Of Old Time Favorites - Part 1 / Medley Of Old Time Favorites - Part 2
recorded June 27, 1927 in St. Paul, Minnesota

Here`s the next installment of the "only disc recorded" series. I have no information on Billy Bishop. I assumed back when I first got this disc that Billy Bishop was likely a pseudonym for Walter Peterson, which was a man that also recorded many solo harmonica/guitar sides for the old Gennett label and was issued on many different labels and sold mostly through mail order catalogs like Sears.etc, but apparantly not. The material of the artists is quite similar, mostly old pop type tunes and old traditional songs. Song titles for Part 1 is Cricket On The Hearth, Shade Of The Pines and White Wings, Part 2 is Listen To The Mocking  Bird and Annie Laurie. Happy downloading!
