My mother, Betty Zukov, to whom I owe whatever musical talents I may possess, turns 90 today. We’re up at her place celebrating … with champagne, of course. And yes, she’s still conducting.

The photo above shows Mom in the late 1930s, possibly early 1940s, in costume for an opera or operetta of title unknown. She used to perform at the Pabst Theatre in Milwaukee.
