    So, so glad I arrived for the tail-end of the denim era, and not the shako era.

      Oh, I can envision you in a shako. Sorry to have missed it.

      I don’t have the words to convey how much I share this sentiment. Would have been OK with me if the denim era had lasted longer.

        +1 to that, buddy.

        and Sandy, I managed to avoid it in high school as well, because of the peculiar nature of the instrument I played. Was never so glad as when I persuaded the powers that be that it would look ridiculous wearing one while seated at an electric piano. Not that an Rhodes 88 on a trailer with a couple Peavey SP-8s in front of it wasn’t ridiculous to start with…

          No q-tip hats for sousaphone players, thank you very much! My parents bought us all black berets which we thought were tres cool.

      Shako? That sent me running to the dictionary.

    They’re dueling with slide rules.
    That’s Bill Tucker, future president of Will Rice, on the ground in the center foreground.
    Probably Kay Flowers, third from the left, above center.
    I remember participating in this, but cannot recall what I did in this segment.
