Tell Joel that, in Britain, Vera Lynn is still alive, aged 99, made records
with Ambrose and others before WWII (which started here in 1939).
We didn't have an audited 'hit parade' then but the Ambrose records sold

Mary Lee is still alive too, she recorded with Roy Fox pre-WWII.

Happy 93rd birthday to (Baby) Rose Marie.
She made this 78 at age 7, according to the label.
FWIW, Joel Whitburn says she is the last living pre-WWII hitmaker.
