Well, Kaye Wade, by "pre-war" most of us mean "before WWII." You must
have heard of WWII: it was in all the papers.
As for vocals, I've just posted a defense of vocalists, noting how much
I enjoy supporting them. But to claim that without a vocal, "you can hear
it as elevator music" is so preposterous that I can only think you must have
been in mid-stunt when you so typed.
Kaye: you must THINK before you type. Otherwise, you produce the
following sillies: Hawkins' "Body and Soul" is elevator music; Benny
Goodman's "King Porter Stomp" is elevator music. Etc., etc., ad infinitum.
Stop that! You are one of my conservative Right Guard people, and I want
you to make sense!
love you, but spank you!
