Frank Coombs

Profile:
(1871 - 1941) American vocalist (tenor), Coombs saw the passing of one era of entertainment and the birth of another, and found success in both is dead. In the halcyon days of vaudeville he worked with many vaudeville’s greatest names – Weber And Fields, Lew Dockstader, The Primrose Minstrels. He appeared in Victor Herbert’s productions and knew the great composer well. And in his later years, he returned to his home town of Seattle and found happiness in working in the new field – radio. For 15 years he broadcast a weekly show of child talent “Uncle Frank’s Children’s Matinee”, 4 years over KOL and for the last 11 years over KJR.
