Arlene Johnson - Singer

Sadly, Hank passed away on Oct 19, 2014. He will be missed by his many customers and friends, and his contribution to OTR was significant.

Arlene Johnson - Singer

Does anyone have any information on an Arlene Johnson who sang with groups in the late 1930's and early 1940's? I think she may have done the vocals for a record the Paul Martel Orchestra in 1944.

Also known as "Babs", Arlene sang with a trio named the Smoothies during the late 30s. The Smoothies were regular performers with Hal Kemp and his orchestra. Arlene married Del Sandberg in 1940 and later had 3 children, I being one of them.
