Les Paul (1915-2009) and Mary Ford (1924-1977)  were a popular
1950s husband-and-wife musical duo who performed and recorded during 1945–1963. The couple were introduced to each other by
Gene Autry
in 1945 and were married on December 31, 1949.

Paul and Ford are famous for creating a makeshift recording studio
in their garage. In that studio, they used
multitrack recording to
record many of their big hits.
