Oompah Hour #154 (really)

OK, this week you REALLY get program 154.  As you recall I forgot how to count last week! So last week's post SHOULD say "Oompah Hour #153"  LOL. 

This week's show includes a bit of a tribute to Wally Pikel who passed away last week at the age of 90! If you don't know Wally, he was famous for playing multiple trumpets at the SAME TIME.  Often while RIDING A POGO STICK! He performed this feat on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson and also on the Mike Douglas show.  He started his band in 1944, did his radio show "Pikel Patch" on KDUZ radio in Hutchinson , MN for decades (in fact did the show the weekend before he died).  He also owned a music store, and was an all around great guy.  So, a bit of  history and a couple of his tunes in the show this week. Of course the show is at the usual link:  Next week's show will take us through St. Patrick's Day, so we'll be including at least ONE version of "When Irish Eyes Are Smiling", POLISH style!
