This would have been my father’s birthday (he died in 1974). His taught high school band and then became a school administrator. But he kept his hands in music, directing among other groups a community band. This playlist consists of songs the band played. Except as otherwise noted, all the songs are by Leonard Bernstein and the  New York Philharmonic – one of my dad’s favorite groups.
