Harry Hudson/ Walter Miller

Could not find anything about Walter Miller - another nom de plume perhaps? Delightful double novelty disc with Sarah Jane sounding very much like On Ilkley Moor Bah't At?! "Harry Hudson was a music hall personality who recorded solo comic records for Edison Bell Records..In 1928,the newly formed Edison Bell Radio label was born, and Hudson was approached to become the musical director. So Hudson began recording several hundred records before the depression, finally sank the label, in 1932/33 However from 1934 enterprising Hudson,went on to concentrate on the Variety Club circuit. in Great Britain. Someone informed me that in old age he played piano intros on a TV quiz show in the 1950's..It seemed he had a very upbeat personality. The Radio records have a loud,dynamic sound that showed Hudson's classy studios bands to their best advantage." Harry Hudson - When I Met Connie In A Cornfield. Harry Hudson - Sarah Jane.
