On this day in #history in 1921 singer Mary Small was born. She would entertain audiences for over 70+ years yet die penniless and a ward of the court. Her incredible life story is being told for the first time in a new documentary… The Little Girl with the Big Voice.

Thank you Justin Kincaid for having us on your Film Fervor Podcast!
is something I think a lot of people should really rally behind and definitely support. I know that there are hundreds of thousands
of crowd funding campaigns out there but this one is definitely worth it because
it is a cultural icon. Everybody in the
industry, male or female, we all sort of owe that type of homage to the people
of that era. -Justin Kincaid, Film Fervor
David S. Siegel has done a tremendous job here in capturing the voices of a number of individuals who made such significant contributions to not just radio but our culture. He elicits more than just facts in these interviews, he allows these actors, singers and writers to really open up in ways they hadn’t before. My research into Mary Small benefited greatly from his interview with her and opened up new lines of investigation I would have otherwise not had. I am thrilled that this book is available to offer a glimpse into not just a different era, but in so many ways a different outlook on life and the entertainment business.
