Links, I can find.I want to know what you like--"Ukulele Lady" is indeed a big hit, though it was written by Michigan boy, Richard Whiting--a number of years ago, I ran into someone who had gone to see Manuel Nunes granddaughter in a nursing home in Santa Clara, she was then over a hundred years old--he said she had a Nunes uke on the wall, which she took down, and played "Ukulele Lady", and he said she was great--Wish I'd have been there! But it is a great reason for visiting the folks in nursing homes--many of them played, and maybe still play the ukulele!
