Baritone Robert Nicholson recorded several songs with a Victorian connection. During his first recording session in November 1929 he recorded Ballarat the Fair and then, a few weeks later, Back to Warrnambool accompanied by the composer Reg Stoneham. In March the following year he recorded another Stoneham song, Mildura (Home of Mine). Nicholson’s story is a fascinating one and detailed in an article by performing arts historian Frank Van Straten in his journal On Stage in 2005.
