STAGE PRESENTS

MUSICIAN’S FAVORITE THINGS

Posted on

Long after the eggnog is gone, the tree has been hauled away, and wacky Uncle Harry has returned to Dayton, what will kids remember about the holidays? Well, the presents, of course. We asked a few musicians who are popular with kids to think back and single out their most memorable treasures. *Chris Smith of Kris Kross: ”A Giants football jacket when I was 10.”

*Joanie Bartels: ”A brand-new guitar!”

*David Grisman: ”A Jerry Mahoney doll.”

*Sharon, Lois & Bram: ”A bike.” ”A stack of books.” ”Chocolate Hanukkah coins.”

*Frank Cappelli: ”A black guitar with a sunburst on it. Look what it did for me!”

*Shari Lewis: ”The year I turned 13, my dad taught me a Hanukkah act and got me a half-day show in the Boston area. What a great gift! Thanks, Pop.”

*Jerry Garcia: ”A set of silver cap guns and a holster when I was 7.” -Bill Shapiro
