If you're talking about Jack Wadsworth's bass sax with the Great Pacific
Jazz Band, I can understand why he did that. He had to, Bob. The acoustics
were so bad that no one in the audience could hear Jack's bass sax.
Especially when it in the back of the bandstand.

Several people asked me what the plumber was repairing on stage with all
that brass tubing while you, Bob Havens, Zeke Zarchey and the others were
