First He Plays it Fast, Then He Plays It Slow!
First He Plays it Fast, Then He Plays It Slow!
This recording was made in September 1965, on the occasion of my 13th birthday party at our home in New London, Iowa, using a moderately inexpensive reel-to-reel tape recorder which I believe was my birthday present that year. It was not on the highest grade of tape and was not transferred to the digital medium until many years later, therefore the sound quality, though enhanced, is still not good.

Voices in this file are Leota Brumm (Hattie "Leota" (Walker/Krekel) Brumm) and family friend, Dawn Shacklett. The complaint about the speed referred to my piano playing.

Happy Birthday

Let Me Call You Sweetheart
This recording was made in September 1965, on the occasion of my 13th birthday party at our home in New London, Iowa, using a moderately inexpensive reel-to-reel tape recorder which I believe was my birthday present that year. It was not on the highest grade of tape and was not transferred to the digital medium until many years later, therefore the sound quality, though enhanced, is still not good.

Relatives and a friend and I singing the end of "Let Me Call You Sweetheart," a piece of sheet music in the house, the evening of the birthday party. Those whom I remember who were present and singing were Maude Mae (Walker/Umphrey) and Roy Grant Fortner, Zella "Myrtle" (Walker) Dotson, and my mother, Hattie "Leota" (Walker/Krekel) Brumm. I don't believe Ted Dotson or my dad participated in the sing-a-long.

Myrtle Dotson Sings in Swedish
This recording was made in September 1965, on the occasion of my 13th birthday party at our home in New London, Iowa, using a moderately inexpensive reel-to-reel tape recorder which I believe was my birthday present that year. It was not on the highest grade of tape and was not transferred to the digital medium until many years later, therefore the sound quality, though enhanced, is still not good.

After baiting my relatives to try to get them to talk, and they were all trying to be quiet because I was recording them, my Aunt Myrtle Dotson (Zella "Myrtle" (Walker) Dotson) broke into an old Swedish song, which I'd never heard, and which was interesting, as she was not of Swedish origin.
