Just another great interview that costs me $20!
Searching the index of POPS, it's disappointing not to read about Blanche Calloway with whom Louis recorded (and did more...) in the twenties.
Also, I'd like so much to hear some anecdotes about the HOT CHOCOLATES show with Fats Waller... and Cab Calloway (1929).

Just saw your Louis Armstrong play at Shakespeare and Co in the Berkshires with John Douglas Thompson, directed by Gordon Edelstein. Really lovely. Thank you so much. I am a professional musician. I knew some of the facts but really did not absorb it the way it should be absorbed.
