    Happy Birthday, Doc!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


      Here Doc play the calliope on the Avalon

      Happy birthday, Doc! May you have many more.

      You can here Doc play the calliope on the Avalon about 1960 at my web site -

      Birthday special: I can send anyone interested a copy of just the CD without the book for $7 postage paid. Thanks to modern technology we can hear the good old days on the river today and for ever more.

      This recording started out as a 33 1/3 LP record. I have two extra mint copies if anyone wants a copy of this classic. $20 each carefully packed and shipped within the US.

      Keep your steam up!
