Children for Dora Hall

I didn't recognize the artist on this latest vinyl to cd conversion for a customer, nor the label (Cozy Record Company), so I did a quick search to get more info.

This fan site for Dora Hall is a good start, but doesn't have too much real data. Turns out Dora Hall is the stage name of the wife of Leo Hulseman (1898-1989). Leo Hulseman's main claim to fame was the fact that he is the founder and owner for many years of the Solo Cup Company. Supposedly, Dora Hall records were often a free promotions for Solo Cup customers. The company is still privately owned and run by the Hulseman family.

Next time you pick up a plastic cup at a party, you'll have a bit of trivia to drop on the old folk!
