About The Group

A talented group of musicians that got together and performed on WLS back around 1948. Perhaps you'll recognize some of them from another similar musical/comedy group known as the Novelodeons. Perhaps this time, there was more emphasis on the comedy, as the WLS Family Album in 1948 wrote "...believe it or not, there is real musical skill concealed beneath the comic exterior..."
