MAIRZY DOATS ~ The Merry Macs (1944) Decca Records - The group originated in the 1920's and consisted of the McMichael brothers, Ted, Judd, & Joe. Later , they added Cheri McKay and the group became known as The Merry "Macs", due to all of their last names containing "Mc" (meaning "of"). Somewhere around 1941, Marjorie Garland came into the group and this is the female voice heard on this recording. She would later become Mrs. Judd McMichael. It has been said that they were influenced by The Mills Brothers, however, The McMichael Brothers , known as The Personality Boys by 1927, were already well established by the time The Mills Brothers arrived on the music scene. It was most likely, the other way around.
