  1. My father, John Redaelli, sang opera on the Major Bowes Amateur Hour in the late 40’s. Any record available? Thanks, Paul John Redaelli.

    Hi
    Looking for any recordings from blues singer Ginny Tull. She performed on the Major Bowes Show and travelled with his all girl review in the 40s. Thanks! Dan
