Fact #61096


Short story:

Eleven-year old violinist Yehudi Menuhin makes his Carnegie Hall, New York City, USA, debut, with the New York Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Fritz Busch. Menuhin will achieve such massive popularity in the USA that, after a 1939 appearance on The Bob Hope Show on NBC Radio, the question Who's Yehudi?" will become an oft-repeated catchphrase across America. The catchphrase will inspire a popular 1943 song, Who's Yehoodi, written by Bill Seckler and Matt Dennis, which will be recorded by Cab Calloway, Kay Kyser, Lane Truesdale And The Kingsmen and others.
