Since we've been mentioning these two singing groups on this forum, I have a question about them....
It's been mentioned that two of the "Sportsmen" members later became members of the "Mellomen".
How did this work? Both groups seem to have been actively working around the same time (The Sportsmen on Jack Benny's radio and TV programs, and The Mellomen on "The New Edgar Bergen Hour" radio show).
Did the two members leave The Sportsmen, join the Mellowmen and were replaced in the Sportsmen group?
Were the two members singing in both groups during the same period?
Did The Sportsmen disband shortly before The Mellomen were formed?
Any info on this will be greatly appreciated...Thanks!
