Merry Christmas, everyone, from the producer of this blog. I appreciate your continued readership.

And though I can’t speak for all of them, I’m certain the Future World Brass (pictured) wishes you all the best as well. The photo dates from 1982 or 1983. It was taken at EPCOT Center in Orlando, Florida. That’s yours truly, front and center. Yes, I was a member of the band, my first professional gig out of college.

Someday, I’ll have to relate the saga of the Future World Brass and my membership therein.

There will be no cash prize awarded for the best comment …
