Jean Sablon, uncertain date

February 3, 2010

This side of the record doesn’t have a date on it, but the reverse is 5/19/47. I assume this is from somewhere around the same date. I’ll post a picture of the label later.

Jean Sablon

Jean Sablon was a French singer who was compared to Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra and other big names of the time. I think he had a weekly show on CBS.  Apparently my grandpa really liked him, as I have several of his programs and they’re all in pretty bad shape.

This program, which is sponsored by DuBarry, includes “It’s Almost Like Being in Love” (“from the new Broadway musical Brigadoon”), “Rio De Janerio,” “Accordion” (in French), and “Don’t Take Your Love from Me.” There are also a couple of commercials for DuBarry face powders and creams.

As always, here is the link to the relevant page on my bandcamp site.
