Nick Lucas & His Troubadours
78 rpm; Hit of the Week Records was a record label based in the United States of America in the early 1930s. Distinctively, “Hit of the Week”s were made not of shellac as was usual for gramophone record of the era, but of a patented blend of paper and resin called Durium. A related label in the United Kingdom was called Durium Records. The label debuted in February of 1930. Unlike other records, it was sold at news-stands, not record stores. ca: 1932
