Doesn’t anyone get good ol’ fashioned satire anymore??? It seems to be becoming a lost art….

I remember my dad speaking fondly of hearing a performance by F F Jenkins, I wish I could have been there!

P.S. I forgot to add that Maestro Fagioli actually performed on a harp entirely strung with specially treated spaghetti, the exact formula was lost during the late ’60’s… (coincidently correspondent to the advent of the hemp crop…) and that the works of Stromboli were a real hit with the spaghetti harvest crowd..”encore”..”encore”..!!! If it weren’t for that darn BBC investigation, he would still be out there at 98 yrs old strumming away…..
