Freddie Shayne and Dick Mushlitz, Dec. 31, 1950.jpg
Here's a photo of Freddie Shayne and Dick Mushlitz, on New Year's Eve 1950 with Mushlitz quoting:174 viewsI remember it was New Years Eve 1950 that Phil Kiely and I were at the Beehive (55th and Harper, Chicago SE side), but not much else. Remember, it was 57 years ago. I am now 77 and that seems like an eternity ago.I do recall that we probably were there to listen to the jazz band, which if my memory serves me had Miff Mole or Floyd O'Brien, trombone, George Zack, piano and my favorite Baby Dodds on drums. I don't remember the rest of the band. Freddie Shayne played intermission piano, and we talked to him while listening to the band. We went outside and took pictures which were later published in Peter Silvester's book. I'm sorry, but I don't remember much else.
