What song would you like played at your funeral?

My original ballad, "Nostalgia Revisited" because it's my love letter to my wife.

What is your favorite song to whistle or sing in the shower?

Changes all the time. You're probably too young to have ever heard the Gillette Cavalcade of Sports theme. It sounds a lot like the theme from "Bridge Over The River Kwai." I also like to sing these childish dirty songs my wife taught me. "Oh, the monkey wrapped his tail around the flagpole " You get the drift.

If I could have dinner with anyone from history, who would it be and why?

Totally Frank Zappa. SO many questions I need answered. But anyone outside music? Probably Fred Trump so I can ask him how it felt when he saw four of his son's casinos go into bankruptcy.

Ed Palermo, what went wrong with you? You have a screw loose, pal?

Of course. I'm a jazz musician.
