The Piccadilly Players was a small Edison house band and was led by Mel Morris.
Vaughn De Leath was a female singer who gained popularity in the 1920s, earning the sobriquets "The Original Radio Girl" and "First Lady of Radio." Although popular in the 1920s, De Leath is little known today.
By 1921, in the formative years of commercial radio, De Leath began singing at WJZ, in Newark, New Jersey. She also performed on the New York stage in the early- to mid-1920s, but radio became her primary medium, and she made a name for herself as a radio entertainer.Her recording career began in 1921.
De Leath had a highly versatile range of styles, and as material required could adapt as a serious balladeer, playful girl, vampish coquette, or vaudeville comedienne.
In 1923, she became one of the first female executives to manage a radio station.
