Idaho Musical Poem Recorder from Cascade Idaho.

During the 1940s and 50s, Ione Love Thielke (pronounced Til-key) was known as the Musical Poem Recorder of Cascade, Idaho. She set poems to music–her own poems and poems of others. She sang them before live audiences and on the radio, and recorded them on discs, using a personal recorder.
