Listening Session: Presidents’ Day and Mad Magazine

Harry Truman plays Mozart (badly) at the White House.

Richard Nixon plays piano on Jack Parr (his own “music,” but he didn’t orchestrate the strings).

Bill Clinton, saxophonist, plays some of “God Bless the Child” on Arsenio Hall.

My centennial celebration of Lester Young.

I haven’t thought of that marvelous 1958 Mad Magazine spread on Hi-Fi in decades, but it came up in conversation recently and I just found it at this forum. These days I’m most impressed by the last page, record reviews and letters to the editor.
