William Frawley, Fred On “I Love Lucy” Did Sing On A Record! Pop Culture (I Love Lucy) History

Mr. Pop History – It’s interesting that even Fred Mertz cut a record. At one time, it seemed the “in thing” – to get every popular actor in the recording studio. I mean, so many did it.

Back in 1958, after “I Love Lucy” morphed into “The Luci-Desi Hour” on CBS-TV, you could go to record stores and purchase, “William Frawley Sings the Old Ones” on Dot Records. This is the same label that later released albums by actors Leonard Nimoy (Spock) and Greg Morris (Barney) on “Mission: Impossible.”
