Oodles Of Doodles CXCV


I stumbled across a large collection of polka records the other day. I was tempted to buy the whole stack of maybe 50 records, but I resisted the temptation, instead buying only the neat looking ones, or the ones with interesting song titles. That's how I ended up with the great doodle you see above. Look in the background and you'll see a member of he orchestra playing an accordian. I guess that's about the only way to identify this as a polka doodle. This picture comes from Johnny Pecon And His Orchestra-Pecon Polka (Capitol T883). I have very little desire to actually listen to this record, but maybe someday if I get invited to Oktoberfest, I can break it out and play it. Maybe.

Whoops, I forgot to point out the signature. It's there on the bass players left arm. I think it says Robt Limber, which I assume is Robert Limber. Hmmm, there's an illustrator by that name popping up on Google, but only from book sales. Gotta keep hunting.
