I live in Indianapolis and was watching about 2AM probably in early March 2010. I was channel surfing and had not watched the movie before and did not stay up for the next movie. Not sure if it was the depression era, could have been. I know this was not much help.
I was watching TCM late one night and viewed a short with a band trying to audition/play on a radio program. The band leader played the violin/fiddle. I wanted to know the name of the short and the song they played and of course did not write it down. Were they an actual band?
