Very sad - especially as his records and Van Gogh went up in smoke.  :(
Snoopy's pension from serving in WWI must have been exceptionally high and/or he was moonlighting; after all, how could a middle-class  'guard dog' have afforded such luxuries?!

A very good point! Why did I not think of that?  ::)

If I'm recalling correctly, I remember a story about Maria Callas when a girl/teen? being in a musical competition (radio, I think).  An accordion player (whose name I don't recall and had never heard of before), won; she came in second.  Wonder what the judges were thinking of their decision say 20ish years later?

By the way, I don't have anything against accordions...sometimes even enjoying the playing thereof!   ;)

PD

In a biography of Arthur Honegger, I read many moons ago that he once complained about being driven crazy in Paris by "accordion music on radios everywhere."   8)  Possibly that was at the height of the "transistor radio" craze of the late 1950's and 1960's.
