What is the name of the piece played on Evening Music at ~10:30PM Friday 11/28? Franz Waxman Celebration something that sounded like 1950s twist music? TIA, Doug

Anything concerning Goofii interests me greatly...

I once found a website describing Joe Venuti playing the Goofus and Hot Fountain Pen.
If I recall, the Hot Fountain Pen is something like a soprano clarinet and the Goofus is a modified melodion with a stem and a bell resembling a sax with a keyboard. Must recheck that...

Go with Goof! ~ Sam
