An OKOM story.
The morning that President Kennedy was shot I was in my classroom (I taught band and related classes in public school ) and it was almost like someone kicked me in the stomach. My class came in and honestly I just couldn't teach so I pulled a record out of the collection at random and put it on. It was the Dukes of Dixieland. I had a real problem listening to Dixieland for years after that. I stayed away from that kind of music for years. It finally dawned on me why I didn't listen to Dixie anymore. When I figured out the connection I was able to enjoy it again.
RE: What's playing on your CD
I was playing back the recording of a rehearsal when this came in the first time.
