To-day, December 4.

                On this very date, one hundred years ago to be exact, the great Mister Leonard Spencer died a sudden and unpleasant death. He was more than just a singer and recording artist, he was a great vaudevillian and a prominent man in his community. He was one of the first to truly shape the recording industry, starting in 1889-1890 when Columbia began to record him, his vast ideas of recording music were influential, and progressive. He inspired singers to become owners of the music business, both in publishing and in recording itself. His work in establishing the modern music business shall forever live on.

       May his wonderful baritone voice live on forever...
