A Forgotten Ukulele Hero - Cliff Edwards, "Ukulele Ike"

I saw this video the other day on another blog, and just had to explore further. Have you ever heard of Cliff Edwards? I hadn't. But a pound to a penny you've heard his voice.... the voice of Jimminy Cricket, in Disney's Pinnochio. "When You Wish Upon a Star"...? And I found this very sad tale.

How sad that even in his own home town he is not remembered. I discovered the story on this blog, about the old movies. Thanks to Jonas Nordin the blogger.
