1976...A Strange Year for Ice Cream

1976...A Strange Year for Ice Cream

1976, Pretoria, South Africa.  Recently married, Deb and I were saving like mad for our impending trip to Denton TX, to inaugurate my studies at UNT.

At the time, I was an unwilling guest of the South African Defense Force and was scraping out a meager salary posing as a gifted trombone player in the South African Army’s newly formed Entertainment Unit. In order to save enough money for our impending trip, I spent many evenings raising extra cash by playing private gigs as well as performing as a pit musician for various Broadway Musicals that were currently being staged in Johannesburg.
