It's funny, when I saw the song title 'My brother makes the noises for the talkies' I immediately thought of the Max Raabe version (German): Mein Bruder macht im Tonfilm die Geräusche' and I went and searched for it on YouTube where I found this gem from 1931:

Glad you liked the Entry smiley - cheers

I've never heard this Mr Apollo version, no. Didn't find it on YT, either.
