Not My Victrola: Life Ain't Fair

While Lawrence Welk haunted the airwaves on Saturday nights during my childhood, Ted Lewis was playing nightclubs to make a living. I seek out Ted Lewis records; I've never done that for Lawrence Welk. Everybody's Not Happy, Lawrence. We were robbed! Here is a great Ted Lewis recording of The Bugle Call Rag, courtesy of John Engels. You can always tell it's Ted Lewis when he gets that clarinet wound up.
