Searching for the lost recordings of the Texas Dollies
« on: April 29, 2020, 08:24:32 PM »
What is the best way to find recordings people may have of the band my mother and her sisters had in in the 40's and 50's?  It  could be a recording of a radio show, show they played at, etc.  They  were a pretty popular group called the Texas Dollies.  They appeared on the radio many times, toured all over doing Vaudeville & USO and such, but their father destroyed all their records.  Toured mostly in  New England.

Thoughts?
Thanks!

Have you checked with 78 auctioneers?  There's a subset of folks who collect radio transcriptions - 16" discs @33rpm.  Basically 1/2 hour radio shows that were distributed to small stations around North America.  USO did a lot of these.
