97612. The Ambassadors Of Melodyland. 1930. Program #1. Stanley Broadcast Service, (Columbia 78 rpm discs #2583). Sustaining. A fascinating show, with a really good-but-unidentified orchestra. The band plays for "The Queen Of Hearts" (who is not heard). The first tune is, "What Is This Thing Called Love?" Listen carefully to, "Mysterious Mose." It's a catchy novelty tune that was written by Walter Doyle in 1930 and recorded by his orchestra. "Mose" was also recorded by Harry Reser and His All-Star Radio Orchestra. The broadcast arrangement sounds like Harry Reser, the bass sax sounds like Adrian Rollini, but the vocalist is not Tom Stacks and there's no banjo heard. The best known version of "Mysterious Mose" was heard during a Betty Boop cartoon which was also filmed and released in 1930. Betty was in her "pre-Code" days and her antics are quite racy. The Betty Boop "Talkatoon" helps to date this broadcast no earlier than 1930. However, the Stanley Broadcast Service is known to be still active in 1934. J. F. Flaninger (? announcer). 14:09. Audio condition: Excellent. Complete.
