"Sleigh Ride" (without the mawkish unofficial lyrics) was my first introduction to Leroy Anderson.  It was the opening and closing theme of the very first professional ice show I ever saw; a LIVE-remote summer replacement on a local TV station.  Bad reception and all. I had to have been about 10 or 11 years old, and I was a goner.  I'd never seen anything like that before in my life.  It CHANGED my life...for the better.

Every time I hear the trite lyrics that somebody else wrote, without Anderson's permission, I want to scream, and wish that the presumptuous SOB who wrote them had had his entire family's DNA wiped out in the Civil War.

My first introduction to Leroy Anderson was by listening to old 45 rpm records made of red vinyl from the 1950's that came from my grandmother's house.  The Leroy Anderson songs were conducted by the great Arthur Fiedler.

Thanks Carl, and I also found music I had forgotten, like The Waltzing Cat. Nice!

Chris, your should Google "Leroy Anderson" and listen to his music.  He wrote a lot of fun and breezy classical music.

That one is new to me, thanks, I like it!

Daniel, I SO wanted to reset that video to Leroy Anderson's "Typewriter Song"!

I didn't know dogs liked corn.

Tomorrow, I'm going to make some corn bread, with lots of fresh kernels in it.

Mmmm.  Looks like an ear of sweet corn.  That's the best.

Daniel, your summer meal sounds perfect.

Patricia, yes, there is nothing like the sublime, earthy smell of fresh corn.

That makes me hungry for summer food, corn on cob, grill snd kebab, potato salad, deviled eggs
