Fra Klaus Guldager, Odense:
 
 
My mother Ulla Thomsen lived in Odense and got a nice hardcover autograph book for her 18th birthday in January 1934. She got her first autograph on 24 Feb. 1934: Osvald Helmuth.

Osvald Helmuth visited Odense in February 1934 together with the accordion players Herman Gellin and Ernst Borgstrøm. "De Tre raske Drenge" was on tour in Denmark and Iceland and gave a concert in Fyns Forsamlingshus on 25 February. They performed with a mixed program, where  the"Accordion Kings" gave a several numbers, and Osvald Helmuth entertained partly with funny stories and partly with songs accompanied by Borgstrøm on accordion, among other things. the famous "Ølhunden glammer".
 
Min moder, Ulla Thomsen boede i Odense og fik en fin indbunden autografbog til sin 18-års fødselsdag i januar 1934. Hun fik sin første autograf den 24. feb. 1934: Osvald Helmuth.
Osvald Helmuth besøgte Odense i februar 1934 sammen med harmonikaspillerne Herman Gellin og Ernst Borgstrøm.
 "De Tre raske Drenge" var på turné i Danmark og på Island og gav koncert i Fyns Forsamlingshus den 25. februar. De optrådte med et blandet program, hvor "Harmonikakongerne" gav en række numre, og Osvald Helmuth underholdt dels med morsomme historier og dels med viser akkompagneret af Borgstrøm på harmonika, bl.a. den kendte "Ølhunden glammer".
 
 

Gellin, Borgstrøm and Helmuth took Kolding by storm.
 Accordion virtuosity and Copenhagen Mood -The hall cooked either of laughter or applause.
   It is hardly possible to offer something bigger and better on accordion than Gellin and Borgstrøm's interprertation of Popy's "Oriental Suite" - it was more than virtuosity.
    Oswald Helmuth lets his humor shine over the hall - songs, stories, etc.., and there was applause, but when one spectator called: "Louder" ,Helmuth replied: "I ​​speak loud enough, but you are apparently 50 cents too far back," the applause knew no limit.

Fra Just Bidstrup:

Et program fra en af 1938 tourneer med Cirkus Revyens Stjerner - eller rettere nogle af de medvirkende fra den sommers Cirkus Revy:
 Herman Gellin, Børge Rosenbaum/Victor Borge, Carl Fischer, Ellen Jansø, Eilert Lindorff-Larsen (revyens kapelmester og dengang gift med Ellen Jansø, han blev senere gift med Gerda Gilboe) og nederst til højre den meget dygtige harmonika-virtuos Ernst Borgstrøm. Dette muntre selskab drog landet rundt med numre fra revyen.


A program from one of the 1938 tours with the Circus Revue Stars - or rather some of the performers from that summer's Circus Revue: Herman Gellin, Børge Rosenbaum / Victor Borge, Carl Fischer, Ellen Jansø, Eilert Lindorff-Larsen (the Revue's musical director and at that time married to Ellen Jansø, he later married Gerda Gilboe) and bottom right the very talented accordion virtuoso
 Ernst Borgstrøm. 
This cheerful company went around the country with numbers from the revue.
 "Danmarks-Tournéen" 1938, blev gjort i flere omgange og Annie Jessen blev nogle gange afløst af Ellen Jansø.

Dette program er med Annie Jessen og 2 af hendes sange blev optaget på                        His Master's Voice -- "Rococco"  og  "Sov Min Unge"
