Back in the mid 50's I attended a USO concert in Croix Chapeau, France that featured the men's glee club from Bowdoin College. They called themselves the "Metty Bempsters" based on a vowel exchange of a woman's name(I assume her name was Betty Mempster). That marked the first time I ever heard the song "Twas a cold winter's evening, the guests were all leaving, etc. Does anyone know if the group(obviously not the same personnel !!) is still active ??
