• Frances LANGFORD - So Many Memories

Miss Langford’s first visit to a recording studio was in the summer of 1931 when she cut two tests for the VICTOR company - neither have ever surfaced. With a few obscure waxings during the intervening period and coinciding with her debut on the silver screen, she settled down to regular sessions in July 1935 when she made four sides for the BRUNSWICK company, including "Speaking Confidentially", originally performed by the trio in "Every Night At Eight" After her first session for Kapp in November 1935 she recorded over one hundred titles before the AFM recording ban in 1942. She did make some more for another company when the ban was over. In 1939, radio editors picked her as the ‘All-American Girl’. A favourite with the G.I.s during the war, as noted earlier, she was picked by the civilian population on the East Coast as ‘Queen Of The Campus City College Of New York’. In 1952 she sang for American servicemen in Korea.
