I almost always have a song playing in my head and this morning it has been
"Animal Crackers In My Soup."  I have a couple of versions on 78 including
a Polydor issued in Japan sung by Mae Questel, the Betty Boob (sp) Girl.

My mind had the this conversation with itself.   "So why don't you have a
Shirley Temple version on 78?"  "That's strange, but I don't think I've ever
seen a Shirley Temple 78 ever." "Really, not ever?"  "No."  "Look in Rust's
Entertainer's Discography."  "OK."  "Says here that no commercial recordings
were issued on 78, just on LP compilations."  "Go ask 78-L."  "OK."

So, any special reason no Shirley Temple 78s?  Seems like there would have
been an audience.  There was lots of Shirley Temple merchandise produced.

Just seems odd.
