Don't feel bad, Pat, I'm in my 80s and whistle most of the time while listening to OKOM/MYOM. Gloomy Sunday being one along with some my Dad whistled while driving the car.
  In fact most of my whistling is done as a riff or a solo to a tune going through my head. 
  As for a noted whistler, I remember Elmo Tanner being mentioned as being on the air or a record for his whistling.
  Yes I get strange looks in grocery stores when gong down an aisle and whistle some Bessie Smith blues

Never mind Ron. When you get as old as me you can whistle Gloomy Sunday and 
be a grumpy old man at the same time.
