Whistling from Fresno!

Here’s what Jim Compton-Schmidt has to say about Barbara:

My favorite “play list” includes tunes that i can whistle….that may make me a bit “old fashioned” because soooooo much of what i whistle comes from the “then” of jazz – especially the american song book (you will note that my program is titled “jazz then to now”…to me the “then” is the writing mostly and the “now” is the likes of you who know and love the “then” of america’s classical music – jazz..)….”out of this world” is in my head just now and i might just break out in a whistle any moment…teehee….

Thanks soooo much for your hard work…i love to play your “stuff”……
