Wednesday, February 11, 2015 – Pete Fountain – Trivia Wednesday
Our trivia question today is – Who is Pete Fountain?
Remember when I moved to Bryan/College Station (BCS) – aka Brazos Valley (BV) and I was dehoarding the house? Look back around last summer in the blog for details. But I was getting rid of stuff. But I am pretty sure all this family passed down, don’t throw me away, I could be valuable, ephemera somehow breeds and produces offspring ephemera because there just seems to be more. For example, I found this photograph this morning in a box. It is an autographed photo of Pete Fountain. On the reverse – it says Jan – 1967 in a woman’s script.
OK – I am going to take a WAG – Wild Ass Guess – and say this photograph is probably from CPD – Crap Passed Down and belonged to Aunt Myrnie. Or as we suspect, it could have belonged to her husband. I am really not seeing either one of them tossing their under wear on stage in New Orleans, but hey it was NOLA.
I think it safe to say the photograph did not belong to me. I am not seeing my mother allowing me to go to New Orleans for what would have been my eighteenth birthday.
But if anyone out there wants a signed picture of Pete Fountain, let me know.
