used to play the harmonica when he wasn't busy taming the old west.

day in 1966.  Happy Birthday Jerry!!!

Birthday greetings also go out to Snuffy, the harmonica playing dog!!

Vaudeville harmonica player Victor Pankowitz died on this day in 2000.
Victor was a boyhood friend of Blackie Schackner and was a student at the
Borrah Minevitch Harmonica Institute of America and a member of the
Philharmonicas harmonica band during the 1930's.
