Composer ("Remember Pearl Harbor") and conductor, educated on scholarship at Ohio University. He organized his first dance band while in college, eventually opening the College Inn, featuring his orchestra. With the Ohio U. band, he toured the USA, appearing on radio and introducing the program "So You Want to Lead a Band", which became his trademark. He would often read poetry during the broadcasts, and even recorded a spoken-work album of his recitations. Joining ASCAP in 1964, he also composed a number of other songs including "Until Tomorrow", "Hawaiian Sunset", "Tell Me You Love Me", "Dance of Mexico", and "Wanderin'".
