Hello, Thanks to all for keeping the memory of this great composer alive. Did anyone happen to see the eBay auction for the one-of-a-kind recordings? Made on the day Jerome Kern passed away? Makes me wish I owned a record player. Anyway, the auction ends about a week after Christmas. Does anyone own a recording of this concert? I would definitely be interested. Thanks, Della

I am looking for a certain recording of "Who?" that my father had when I was a kid. I always loved that song. In this particular version there was a man and a woman singing. I think it could have been one of those aluminum-base acetate discs they used to record at radio stations. It was not a comercially available 78rpm.
It is by far the best version I have heard of this song, and I have listened to maybe 6 different versions. I have been looking for this song for the last 30 years.
Do you know of any versions of this song where a man and a woman sing ?

Many thanks
