Crankin' It Up: My Buddy, From 1922

We pulled a new one out of the cabinet, and it's a good one for Veterans' Day.  My Buddy is a sentimental song that was popular with with WWI vets during the 1920's, and fifty years later it was featured in All In The Family when Archie Bunker sang it.  The men who fought in World War II heard this song during the years they were growing up, so it became an important sentimental song for them, too.  This record is a violin solo, and it's a good one.

It took a while, but I finally recognized it.
