The below posting from:
I cannot tell a lie - it is us The Derek Tatam Chicagoans!
We were constrained by the M M people to using only tunes that were out of
copyright which left us with all the old warhorses - apart from - Davenport
Blues - Bix died young enough for it to be included, the director chose the
very best bit, the break from it.
The sound man kindly gave me a Minidisc of everything we recorded so iif
you'd like a copy name your preferred medium MD, tape or CID I guess.
It's obviously been a long time since you posted your question but hope this
We also made a brief appearance but a long background play in "Who Killed
**** Robin" an earlier episode.
However, http://thedeadrockstarsclub.com/2008b.html ,sadly, lists him as
having died in 2009.
