Junkie Doods was one of the original members of the group that Theodore B. Dunn made his debut with, viz. "Bruce Johnson's Washboard Serenaders". He (Junkie)was a close compatriot of the famous clarinettist Jimmie Nonne who is mentioned four or five times at his apex in one of Loenard Faether's fictional novels. Junkie was well-known for his perfect pitch, dramatic vibratos, and soaring glissandoes - no mean feat for a washboard player. Bruce Johnson, of course, was the somewhat obscure composer of various "Serenades to a Washboard" (mostly the same tune in different keys).
