Who is Jack Mudurian?
Mudurian was a resident of Duplex Nursing Home in Boston, Massachusetts. In 1981, an employee named David Greenberg overheard Mudurian singing at a home talent show, and when Greenberg spoke to him about it, Mudurian boasted that he could sing as many songs as Frank Sinatra. Greenberg brought in a cassette tape recorder and asked him to sing; Mudurian proceeded to sing 129 songs, many from the Tin Pan Alley repertory, continuously over the next 47 minutes. The recording was issued as Downloading the Repertoire on Arf Arf Records in 1996, and it became a cult novelty hit; a shortened version appeared on Irwin Chusid's compilation of outsider music called Songs in the Key of Z, Vol. 1.
