An Evening With Wanda

I Fall To Pieces
An Evening With Wanda

Garden Of Eden Records - Indianapolis, Indiana

From the back cover: Across from the famous Indianapolis Motor Speedway on West 16th Street where the 500 Mile Race is held each May is the unofficial home of one of Indiana's best-known supper club songstresses... Wanda Louise Schafer. Wanda, who belts out songs like the late Sophie Tucker while accompanying herself on the piano, has worked with some of the great names in music... Jack Teagarden and Dizzy Gillespie... "Even Dan Rowan and Dick Martin when they were making $500 a week apiece. "One of her memorable engagements was in the Mermaid Room of the Park Sheridan, in New York.

Beginning in Anderson, Indiana, Wanda started singing on radio station WHUB when she was ten. Her stage career began at fourteen in Anderson with her uncle Wanda describes as a "stand-up vaudeville comic."

The entertainment career began so early was postponed while she raised six children. The urge to sing again was song, and she resumed singing at the Shamrock in Anderson where she played for nine years before coming to Indianapolis in 1957. There were seven great years at LaRue's Supper Club before she moved to Al Myers. Later she went to Fort Wayne, Indiana to be the songbird in the Gilded Cage.

Wanda "retired" in 1965 to marry Otto Schafer, a well-known Indianapolis Motor Speedway figure. It was through him she began her "love affair" with the Speedway and its personages. This close association with the Speedway was on of the reasons Wanda decided to "stay close to the track" when she returned to the Indiana entertainment scene.

Here's Your Request - Coburn's Colony Club Combo

Here's Your Request
Coburn's Colony Club Combo
Cover and Notes by "Red" Ashely
Photography by Don Johnson
Recorded At The Studio Of Film Associates, Inc. - Dayton, Ohio
Request Records - Dayton, Ohio
Queen City Album - Cincinnati, Ohio

From the back cover: Every evening at 9:00 o'clock (except Sunday), Bill Coburn and his Combo step into the spotlight at Dayton's own Colony Club. The beat is counted and Vic Tooker vocalizes on "Don't Forget Our Monday, (or whatever-day), Date" ... And it seems that the steady fans of the combo have kept that date, many, many times over the ten years that Bill's Band has been featured at the Colony!

From the back cover: The two pianos of then Marlowes have been heard by millions of music lovers since a pair of prodigious eleven year olds made their debut on a coast to coast telecast with Milton Berle. Natives of Philadelphia and proteges of the famed duo-piano teams of Luboshutz and Nemenoff, Jeffry and Ronald made their orchestral debut, also at the age of eleven, with the Philadelphia Orchestra. Scores of television appearances and six seasons of sold-out, cross-country recital tours have followed, as well as engagements with the New York Philharmonic, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and many other symphony orchestras.
