Performers included William Jennings Bryan, Shirley Mason, Mitzi, Abe Martin (Kin Hubbard), the Criterion Quartet, Wilber D. Nesbit, Chimes and Sterling Brass Quintet, the Westminster Quartet, Bebe Daniels, Taylor Trio, Gennett Trio, Sidney Smith, Meredith Nicholson, and Alice Gennett.  Here are snippets of each.
