note: Brooklyn-born Anthony Slater (1915-1918) yodeled on WLS under
the name of "Smiley Sutter". He later worked as a comic, using the monicker
"Crazy Elmer". One of his bits involved pulling on a taut rope that
extended into one of the stage wings. He would pull and pull, finally disappearing
offstage---eventually reappearing from the opposite wing at the end of
longer s newcomer, but new to the Family Album, 24-year-old Smilie Sutter is a
Brooklyn boy who would much rather be in the country than in the city; who plays
the guitar and harmonica, sings and yodels, and likes to work on crossword puzzles.
