  • Description

    Full title reads: "Millions of people have heard the `smiling voice' of Leslie Holmes `over the air' (especially when singing with Jack Payne's Band)."

    Leslie stands in front of what looks like a strange box microphone. A pianist tinkles away in the background. Leslie does a little patter which includes a little joke about the income tax man. Leslie goes through life smiling as he believes it doesn't do much good to go about feeling sorry for yourself.

    He sings a song called "Milano". It is a very jolly song about Milan, Italy. He holds the sheet music as he sings. "Nobody gives a darn-o in Milano" is an example of the style of lyric!

    Duplicate exists in Turns Can 14 - see separate record for details.
