About This Song
Today’s song, “So Beats My Heart For You,” was written in 1930 by Fat Ballard, Charles Henderson and Tom Waring. As one of the songwriters, Tom Waring, was the brother of Fred Waring, “So Beats My Heart For You,” was featured by Fred Waring and His Pennsylvanians.
And while it is not true that Fred Waring invented the Waring Blendor, he had the good sense in 1938 to invest heavily in the product and named the company that made them the Waring Corporation and named the product the Waring Blendor, substituting the “e” for an “o” to make it more distinctive. The Waring Blendor became an important tool in hospitals for the implementation of specific diets, as well as a vital scientific research device. Jonas Salk used it while developing his polio vaccine. In 1954, the millionth Waring Blendor was sold.
