I wanted to link this week’s
Hullaba Lulu video to San Francisco’s Pride Week so I used an excerpt from a 1929 Dorsey Brothers cover of ‘Am I Blue’ sung by Irving Kaufman.
The Dance of the Bots in Purple, Rob Goldstein
It’s an unusual cover for 1929 and you’ll know why I chose it when you hear the song.
Am I blue
Sunday the 26th is Pride Day in San Francisco.
A couple of friends have remarked on how weird it feels to celebrate Pride

The audio is an excerpt from ‘Glad Rag Doll’ as performed in 1929 by the
Rose Wood Orchestra.
