In Boston and throughout New England, there were few vaudeville duos 
more popular than Max Zides & Tom Currier (who used the name Hum and 
Strum).  From the 1920s through the 1950s, they were regular performers 
at the biggest and best night clubs in the Northeast, as well as on 
Boston radio, and later on TV. I know they made some 78s circa 1947, for 
the Stellar Recording Company, but when I went on YouTube to see if any 
of them were there (several were), I also found an Irish novelty song on 
the Copley label, and my assumption is it's from the 1930s.  I knew 
nothing about this-- I mean, yes I knew the song, but I had no idea they 
recorded it, and I don't know what year.  Do any of you have any info 
about the recording history of Hum and Strum?
