Cliff Edwards || Ukulele Ike || 30 Minute Interview 1969

Terry C., from Australia, has come thru with more Cliff Edwards / Ukulele Ike information to share. Here's a copy of his e-mail thanking Alex for his contribution in the previous Humble Uker post and introducing his new video link...

Hi Jeff,

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, to you and your family! I see on your blog that Alex has uploaded a remastered Cliff Edwards video. That's great! The more 'Ukulele Ike' videos the better. Thanks Alex! And I have uploaded a 30 minute interview with Cliff Edwards below.

This interview was recorded in 1969, two years before his death. Cliff chats about a range of things, including which ukulele was his very favourite during his life. I encourage your subscribers to get a coffee, sit back and listen to one of the all time great ukulele players and singers talking about his career. Very rare recording indeed.

Regards - Terry C.

P.S. I uploaded it to Vimeo because YouTube will not allow videos of 30 minutes in length.
