Charles Lindbergh & The Gremlins

gremlins were fairies or "fae folk' and heavily influenced by pop culture.
They were certainly "in the air" and "over the airwaves" in 1942.

I have not traced a recording of this but the sheet music cover is very fae! :crazy:

With coconut shells on his feet and a horse-shoe in his hat, this devilish fellow has a lot of Irish in him, if only from the admitted caricaturist's library of stereotypes. The horse-shoe was traditionally a good luck symbol but the downward gesture inverts it. Good luck for the Gremlin is bad news for those who encounter him.
