About The Artist

Was heard on the Saturday night Barn Dance show out of Chicago on WLS. His real name was Sorensen. He gained some popularity for doing a lot of popular songs in Swedish. They said he was rather comical to watch as he kept time with his long arms.

One part of his act was that he was always out in the audience somewhere when his turn came on the program. When he was announced, he'd gallop up to the stage at the very last minute.
