About Ted Weems
Wilfred Theodore (Ted) Weems (originally Wemyes) (26 September 1901 - 6 May 1963) was an American bandleader and musician. Born in Pitcairn, Pennsylvania, Weems attended the University of Pennsylvania where he organised a small dance band. Going professional in 1923, Weems toured for the MCA Corporation, recording for several years on Victor Records. "Somebody Stole My Gal" became the band's first #1 hit in early 1924. Weems moved to Chicago with his band around 1928. He had more chart success in 1929 with the novelty song "Piccolo Pete", and the #1 hit "The Man from the South".
