old-timey mysteries


Here we have a few songs I taped off the radio about 15 years ago. The station was one of Santa Cruz's public radio stations (probably either KUSP or KZSC). I can't remember the details but the show these songs came from obviously featured old pop 78's from the 20's & 30's. I'm familiar with versions of a few of these songs done by other people but don't know who is performing these (any information would be appreciated). That said, these are eight awesomely corny old tunes that I still enjoy including the hilarious "he fall down go boom.". The sound quality is very good, though there's some extremely minor FM static and being that these are old-ass records, surface noise. Enjoy.
here's the (probable) track titles:

Chew your Bubblegum - Ella Fitzgerald (?)
I Faw Down Go Boom - Irving Kaufman (?)
Thank your Father
Walkin' Around in the Rain
I Never Dreamt You'd Fall In Love with Me
a precious little thing called love
(and two instrumental sides)

any information would be appreciated!

that was my guess for that one but I wasn't sure. I remember Kurt Vonnegut mentioning "he fall down go boom" in one of his books but the details escape me.
