Whit Cunliffe (1876–1966)
Manchester-born comic singer Whit Cunliffe’s biggest hits included Fall In And Follow Me, It’s A Different Girl Again, Something In The Seaside Air, We’ll All Have A Holiday In The Summer Time, and What Would The Seaside Be Without The Ladies?Music Hall historian W. Macqueen-Pope describes Cunliffe as
Fred Godfrey’s Who Were You With Last Night? (1912) was Mark Sheridan’s song above all, but it was such an enormous success that Cunliffe, the great Australian star Albert Whelan, and many others performed it. Cunliffe seems to have recorded just one Godfrey song, however: There Are Nice Girls Everywhere (Homophone 789; Jumbo 521, 1910).
