NOTE: Johnny MARVIN: b. 1897 in Butler, Indian Territory (now Oklahoma) -- d. 1944 in N. Hollywood, California (heart attack). American ukulele player and singer, one of most celebrated performers and crooners of the era. Billing himself as "the Ukulele Ace" recorded enormous number of sides with his excellent performances of 1920s' hits, such as "Give Me A Night In June", "Marvellous", Oh How She Could Play the Ukulele," "Red Lips, Kiss My Blues Away " and many others. He even had a brand of ukulele named for him. A the ukulele craze of the 20s faded, Marvin retired. When the stock market crashed he lost his savings and came out reinventing himself as a cowboy partner to Gene Autry, providing him with a third-class career that lasted until his sudden death in age of 47. Inducted into the Ukulele Hall of Fame in 2003.
