Transcription Mystery Disc #214
The opening song starts with the lyrics "When I was union, handsome and only 17." The rest of the song continues as you might expect. This could either be a long lost Union organizer song or a long lost Civil war Union army song. The basic gist is that union guys get all the babes. (I've heard the same thing.)
When I was Union
It's followed by a recording of a crooned version of "Let The Rest Of The World Go By." The singer appears to be Gene Autry, and the narrator is "Gary". The song isn't a part of a program, it's a part of an advertisement for Doublemint Gum. The program is probably Gene Autry's Melody Ranch which was sponsored by Wrigley's.
