I worked a joint, 5 nights a week, in Sacramento for 16 1/2 years, from 1961 
to 1977.  It was a great place called Capone's Chicago Tea Room.  It was 
supposed to be like a roaring 20s speak easy.

To get in the door, you walked into a fake telephone booth & pushed the back 
of it.

 There was a customer who used to come in.  His name was Scotty & he was 

One night he requested a tune.  When I played it, he threw a buck in my 
kitty & took out 50 cents.
