"A most memorable read. Berl Olswanger with
W. C. Handy, Bing Crosby, and Memphis children learning
piano by "the revolutionary Olswanger method." News
clippings, comments, memorabilia, plus sheet music
and arrangements by a home-town musician who became
a part of Memphis music history. I was particularly
impressed with the photos of radio personalities,
musicians and singers who performed on Memphis radio
stations live. This package of history is one of
the finest examples of a person preserving information
from the past and doing it uniquely. Anna Olswanger
sets an excellent example for others who have parents
who led interesting, productive lives. Berl must
be leading a heavenly chorus singing songs of praise
to a daughter who has preserved a picture of those
Memphis times along with the music of her father.
A BookZen salute to Anna Olswanger. "
