[Dixielandjazz] August 7 & Pat Cooke

Gumperts or others:
IF you run into a fellow name of John Furbush, a tenor sax player that leads
a big band in the Penacola/Panhandle area, say hi for Don Ingle. We were
classmates at Michigan State, he worked in my jazz band in school, and I met
my wife Jean in his home town of Alpena, MI one summer after college playing
in a small joint there. Jean and I celebrated our 46th last November.
His band takes part in the big jazz fest they hold there each year.
