BOB "BAZOOKA" BURNS
The famed musician is pictured lighting his pipe on stage for NBC. (5x7)
Photograph signed: "Best wishes/ Bob Burns" in black ink. Sepia, 5x7. Bob Burns (1890-1956)coined the word "bazooka" for the homemade instrument he invented in 1905 and became known as Bob "Bazooka" Burns as well as "The Arkansas Traveler" (for his home state). A veteran vaudeville performer, Burns also starred in early "talkies", including Up the River (1930), but was best known for his radio career, which he began in 1931. He was a regular on Bing Crosby's Kraft Music Hall (1935-1941) before having his own program from 1941-1947, when he retired (Burns, however, made a last appearance on television on Toast of the Town in 1955). Toned. Photo slightly faded but not signature. Corners rounded. Lightly bowed. Ink notes on verso in unknown hand. Otherwise, fine condition.
