OK, this is getting really old

There are various periods of music that I know something about. Although my greatest knowledge concerns music composed in the 1950s and later, I have a smattering of knowledge about 1930s and 1940s music, and music from the 18th and 19th century. But I have to rely on an NTN Buzztime trivia expert, RoadDog, to answer questions such as "Who had the number one song in the United States in 1919?"

The answer is here.

The song is "Beautiful Ohio." And you can hear it here.

To my younger readers, I should explain that the disc in the video above is called a "record." Cool kids today refer to it as "vinyl." And the record label, Columbia, is now called "Sony" (which is Japanese for "Columbia," I think).
