Ruth was alledgedly traded to the Yankees to finance Frazee’s musical No No Nanette. (Frazee’s name appears on the top of this poster.) Full disclosure — we dismiss this musical in the podcast, although musical enthusiasts might proclaim No No Nanette was very well worth it, if nothing more than for its signature song “Tea For Two.” Its first run ran over two years in 1925 and a 1971 revival did win several Tony Awards.
