Personal Notes:
I guess my dad and some of his brothers and sisters had an illegal radio station going for a while, when they were kids. Apparently they were suppose to have a license to broadcast. They got booted off the air finally. Lola Geroy used to sing and yodel on the station. They all played music on their accordians, portable piano (kind of like an organ) and harmonica. Wish I had an old recording of that!
