Murry K. Hill

Murray K. Hill was the stage name of Joseph Tunnicliffe Pope, Jr. (1865–1942). He was a vaudevillian who specialized in comic songs and rapid-fire monologues. He recorded prolifically, making cylinders for Edison and U.S. Everlasting and discs for Victor and—briefly—Columbia. His very popular record "The Tale of the Cheese" captures his breezy, fast-paced comic style.
