Steve Barbone asks:

> I'm curious as to who Mal Sharpe is etc. See below.

Mal Sharpe's Dixieland Band (Though many know Mal Sharpe as a TV and radio
personality and humorist and KCSM d.j., his trombone anchors a band the
Examiner called ³the Grateful Dead of Dixieland.²

Any listees in the San Francisco Bay Area know of them?

Steve, Remember the comedy team Coyl & Sharp?  They were pretty big back in 
the 60s & 70s.  Did a lot of funny commercials.  I think Coyl has passed but 
Mal still does commercials.  He also does some very funny man on the Street 
Interviews.  They used to do those years ago also.

Mal plays trombone.  Or should I say, owns a trombone?
