The main side of the record contained a recording of Bing Crosby greeting a group of handicap women in Winnipeg recorded in 1951 so this anonymous recording had to have been recorded then or earlier. I don't know if Sharon Lois and Bram are as popular in the US as they are in Canada but does anyone know anything about the Tiddly Wink song?
