Billy Mure

Aloha !
The Supersonic Guitar Man played violin by age five and switched to guitar at seven; by 13 he was composing. At the start of World War II he joined the U.S. Army and ended up leading an Air Corps band. After the war, he played at radio station WNEW until 1957. Thereafter, he worked as a session musician and arranger/conductor while establishing his own career as composer and recording artist. Some of his early compositions include "Gazachastaliagen," "Got a Match," and "String of Trumpets", and here’s my two favorites ones.

Just what I needed-a reminder that there are places without winter or snow! Thanks, Kat
