Merle Johnston with who?

by Albert Haim

I am collecting information about Merle Johnston for an article I am writing. I found out in The Potsdam Herald-Recorder of October 13, 1922 that "During the past year he [Merle Johnston} has been playing with Randall's Royal Orchestra in Omaha, Nebraska."

Not much info about Randall's Royal Orchestra. A rather obscure regional band that never made it to the recording studio. A photo in the cover of the sheet music for "Wa Wa Waddle Walk."

Paul Ash recorded this song on May 9, 1924 in Los Angeles. Not a bad song.
