Transcription Mystery Disc #30
The recording is of a woman singing, I applied two different noise filters and a low pass filter to great improvement. There were no significant pops to edit out, despite that I don't recognize the tune and the handwriting is illegible. Readers best guesses are welcome on either front.
These were made by Zephyr Products... but there have been many companies with that name. I think it was the one located at 160 E. 116th St. in New York City, then later at 129 E. 124th street also in New York. They appear in the Broadcasting Yearbook from 1942 to 1954 as selling "recording discs, wire recordings spools, needles, accessories." In 1951 and 1952 The manager was listed as Irving London. The rest is a mystery.
