Bugler’s Holiday Mania

Every time I mention Bugler’s Holiday, people ask me about it. So here it is in all its fabulousness …

The US Coast Guard Band:

    Being a purist about music, my fave is the Coast Guard version. Our Dad used to triple tongue on his trumpet and that is such a rare talent. He was in a German Band for many many years as a young man and continued to play at home for many years thereafter, along with the piano, guitar and harmonica.

So ... what do YOU think?
