Toby expertly wiggled out of the commercial and let us go.

As an adult, I've grown to appreciate that many of the things I had thought were beneath me as a young adult were really kind of cool, as anyone who eventually raises a family does.

Back in 1954, my cousin and I were to appear on the Callahan School of Music show, then on CKLW-TV, across the river in Windsor.
I played the trumpet, and my cousin played the accordion. About that time Toby David, aka "Captain Jolly," was hosting a game show in one of the adjacent studios called "Watch the Birdie." The kids watched a film and looked out for the bird.Most theaters were divided into three sections; orchestra, balcony and gallery- with the gallery being the cheap seats.
