A little OTR for the end of the evening....Harry "The Hipster" Gibson..."Personal Album" on AFRS

An OTR that I don't have a lot of info on, interesting one, though. "Personal Album", on Armed Forces Radio (AFRS), with Harry "The Hipster" Gibson. I don't have a date for this one, couldn't find any old radio episodic logs that would supply anymore info on it, either. If any of you can give any details, it would be greatly appreciated. stuff :)

52nd Street, NYC.....pic of Gibson headlining at the Onyx May of 1948.

Ahemmm.....maybe Charlie Sheen put the Benzadrine in Mrs. Murphy's Ovaltine........... ;)


  1. One of my favorites!!! Thanks for the personal album, which is one I never previously encountered. Do you have his Christmas Album? If you do, could you post it? I remember that I had it for a moment but it wasn't anywhere near as good as the old Musicraft treasures, but I wouldn't mind hearing it again.
    So far I've downloaded Harry the Hipster, the Barry Sisters and Harry Lauder only proving that people with weird tastes are not that unique.

  2. The Christmas LP? no, but I'd love to have it!
