Did you know The Ames Brothers Were 4 of 9 siblings, the Uricks from Medford Mass and Ukrainian descent? Gorgeous Quartet listening!

Four of nine siblings–Joseph, Gene, Vic and Ed Urick– were a big singing sensation. I’m listening to a compilation of The Ames Brothers singing classic Christmas songs. Their voices are stunning. Fans know Ed from his acting and solo singing career as well. I didn’t know they were from Massachusetts or their Ukrainian heritage.

See Wicked Local article: “His parents, David Urick (Eurich) and Sarah Urick (Zaslavskaya) immigrated to the USA in 1905, due to the increased pogroms and discrimination against Jewish people in the Russian Empire.”

“In 1956, they starred in their own show, The Ames Brothers Show, which was seen on Friday nights. It was the first syndicated television show to be shown in foreign countries…

Ed is the last surviving member.”
