Transcription Mystery Disc #136

This is a 6.5-inch Silvertone transcription disc with three clearly defined tracks that spins at 78 rpm with an outer edge start. It has a metal core and common brand label but no identifying markings. The first track is of some country-sounding  accordion ballad. But the bed noise is too high to discern anything, it's comparable to the song on the A side which has similar bed noise issues.

Unknown 1959 recording
The 2nd and third tracks were similar to each other, but totally unlike the first cut. These had enough laughter that at first I thought it had a live studio audience. Then I realized what it was. I had done it again. I had found a recording of drunk people at a party.

Most of the dialog is unintelligible, there are a couple jokes about shortness, and bashful girls but toward the end someone jokes about a train and clearly says the year "1959."  I'm going to presume that is near the recording date.
