California Here I Come (2:23)

Cover of Golden Years of

A fun and telling glimpse into a moment of a ‘superstar’ of yesterday. This interview with Al Jolson and radio host (include radio host name and radio station ID with year and date) is truly a precious ‘captured’ moment in our history that this recorded interview recalls, and so lucky we are to have it… This interview includes an outstanding performance of “California Here I Come’‘… performed by Al Jolson, and is complimented with a spontaneous surprise visit, at the end of the song, and near the end of the interview. Friends of Jolson, having been at the ‘hot spot eat spot’ of the day…Lindy’s…join him at the radio station…a fun, and unexpecting Jolson receives his friends.

What makes this particular performance by Jolson Interesting is that , as with all of the post war Performances, by this time Jolson had had his left lung removed after contracting Malaria during the Second World War, even so his voice is just as pwoerful as in the pre war years.
