Heard & Seen At Montpelier

| September/October 1956

Niagara Falls, New York

When we entered the Montpelier (Ohio) grounds for the 1955 reunion, I saw and heard a little story which I thought might interest you and the ALBUM readers.

Three OLD TIMERS, I would say about 70 years old, were standing with one foot up on the white pine fence near the track listening to a Baker steamer on the Prony brake and it was really talking out loud. They watched and listened for a little while saying nothing. Finally one spoke out, saying

'Well now boys I'll tell you something,
You can hear music on the radio,
You can hear music on television,
You can hear music on a phonograph
But nowhere else can you hear music
like that BY CRACKEY.'
