Leonard Smith as a young man, about the time he was recording on rolls for Gulbransen.

"Let's Talk About My Sweetie" is the title of a lively tune on a Supertone piano roll that I got from Mike Schwimmer. It is one of two rolls which I have been able to locate, recorded by newly elected Honorary Member Leonard Smith, a resident of La Habra, California. Leonard is young at 81 and an active musician in Southern California. The other roll, mentioned below, came from Phil and Hazel Wenker. In addition to the rolls he recorded in 1921-23, his contribution to our hobby includes frequent participation in mailing parties for the AMICA News Bulletin.
