Canadians might have a soft spot for Maynard Ferguson, I think he's too shrill.

Harry James? Marsalis? Dizzy Gillespie? Louis Armstrong?

I like Ziggy Elman.

Bix plays a cornet. His playing is other-worldly.

I like the ones mentioned. I saw Marsalis in concert one time. My mother took me. I was a young teenager, and he was playing some pretty experimental stuff. I was grooving to it, and Mom was trying to get into it, but I think it was a bit much. It sounded to her like five people playing different songs to different beats in their heads.

I know this will probably make some people cringe, but I like Doc Severinson too. I know, I know. He's so commercial and brassy and all. But I loved him when I was a kid, and I still love to listen to his stuff on occasion now.

I have more favorite trombone players than trumpet players.

Kenny Wheeler is pretty good. As I trumpet player I do not like Miles' sound- too airy.
Wheeler has an awesome sound.

Anyone remember Al Hirt? The first concert I ever attended, the stage show at the 1968 Buffalo Days, featured Al Hirt and Rich Little.

How about AM radio in the 60s? What a fertile, diverse field compared to radio today. In one day on CKCK in Regina one could hear Peter, Paul and Mary, Johnny Cash, the Irish Rovers, Black Sabbath, the Edwin Hawkins Singers, Petula Clark, Desmond Dekker and Herb Alpert, just to name a few.

Regina AM radio in the '60s Mr. Bong?

Remember Beatle Johnny at 'ME? In the trailer out at the Dub in the north end?

Didja go to the dances at the Y on the weekends? I did.

Didja ever go the old 4D?

Jeez. Such memories.

No, I was too young to go to dances, but I went to swimming lessons there. A buddy of mine was a member, and he invited me as a guest once. My nine year-old psyche received a shock that Saturday afternoon. This is the only place I have ever seen nude swimmers. Do they still do that?

We listened to CBC or Johnny Sandison during the day. I listened to CJME at night in bed, with my transistor radio turned down low. I remember one weird song about a girl needing kool-aid. A couple of years later I heard of Led Zeppelin. Is that FM station still in the Northgate mall?

I've never heard of the Dub. North end? Before Uplands or the Ring Road were built we used to go play in the abandoned buildings and dirt piles that were on the wild side of Ninth Avenue.

Yeah I always swam nekkid at the Y but it was only the all male swims that happened that way. Family swims required full formal wear.

In '64 I was in Grade 11 and CJME had this dj named Johnny Onn. When the Beatles hit the airwaves big he stopped slicking back his hair and started calling himself Beatle Johnny. He used to do remotes from an A&W (the dub) on North Albert.

The dances at the Y were a gas. The band I remember most, prolly cause of the name, was called BITOA - Booze Is The Only Answer.

Well, that didn't last.

You definitely would have been too young to remember the 4th Dimension coffee house. In the Riverside shopping centre under what used to be Sammy's Pizza Parlour and last time I was in town was a something or other steakhouse. The 4D was part of a chain of 4 coffee house/folk joints that could offer folk artists a continuous 8 week gig in 4 different towns. We saw some remarkable acts in little old Regina, most of them more than once or twice. Sonny Terry and Brownie McGee came up as often as twice a year for a while. It was a time.

Yeah, that young men's club stuff was taken seriously in those days I guess. This was a dad's and son's day, no women or girls were in the pool. Not everyone was nude, but some were.

[ed. Yeah, Banquo, I didn't start school until '65. Young, maybe, but I distinctly remember (well, fragments thereof) the jingle for Sammy's Pizza Palace.

"Sammy's Pizza Palace
Your family will agree
Makes the perfect pizza
From here to eternity?

Skip do da de do da
Or buy it at the door
Sammy's ever lovin' pizza
Pick up the phone and just call Sammy"

Like I said...fragments....

That comedy show on CKCK on Saturday mornings was another favourite. What was that theme song, "A yup a dup, and hie-de-ho and ogo pogo."

I heard "Sorry, Wrong Number" with Agnes Moorehead on the car radio while eating at the A&W Drive on north Albert.

Johnny Sandison and Porky Charbonneau reading the comics from the Leader-Post. Yowza!

But back to trumpet players: Jackie Mason. He used to do his comedy act with a really beaten up old trumpet. The surprise was that he could actually play the thing and sound pretty good all by himself.
