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.

Derek Tatam

However, http://thedeadrockstarsclub.com/2008b.html ,sadly, lists him as 
having died in 2009.
