To minimize wear and tear on the untershames, three requests:

1. Send time-sensitive notices well in advance.
2. Send material as plain text to victor.bers at yale.edu as plain text (no
HTML, other  coding, or attachments) and write MENDELE PERSONALS in the
subject line.
3. Correspond directly with the person who or organization which has posted
the notice, *not* with your ever-beleaguered untershames.

Subject: Yiddish Music Question

I am searching for the audio recording plus the lyrics of the song,   It
was written by Herman Yablokoff in the United States. It was one of the
songs in the musical production of Papirosn presented in New York City in
1935. If possible I would like to buy the entire audio recording of the
musical. The music from Shvayg Mayn Harts was supposedly plagiarized by
Eden Ahbez and used in his song, Nature Boy. Thank-you.
