In RA format
Steve Roland appeared in secondary roles on Broadway from 1955 to 1965. Later, he sang in clubs, but above all, made thousands of TV and radio commercials, and became a well-known face to US TV viewers. This recording proves that at some point in his life (I guess: early, before arriving on Broadway), he philandered with opera.
