Some commercial products: 
VolksTrautonium (Telefunken)
Multimonika (Hohner)
Novachord and Solovox (Hammond) 
Ondioline (JJP - might later only)
Clavioline (Selmer and others - might later only),
are there to produce some nice voice

Biggest drawback there is no really envelope there

Could be done with tube technology, which was pretty sophisticated in 1942.

For a purely mechanical approach, music box type sequencers triggering scrapers  (along the lines of mechanical gramophones) with plenty of variable speed gears, cams etc would do the job.

But it wouldn't be easy...
There is always beatboxing..
