These recordings are offered with the kind permission of the Central Territory Music and Gospel Arts Department, William Himes, Director.

In other years the guests included: Irwin Fischer (all years), Erik Leidzen (1954), Bernard Smith (1959), Brindley Boon (1962), Bernard Adams (1965), Morley Calvert (1960), Eric Ball (1963-64-66), Arnold Brown (1956), Philip Catelinet (1957-58), Percy Merritt (1955), Bob Merritt (1960), Dean Goffin (1961), Carole Reinhart (1966), and others.

            You can own historic solos by: Phil Catelinet, Howard Chesham, Irv Pope, Ted Smith, Ron Rowland, Bill Forde, Art Shoults, Bob Merritt, Bill Himes, Carole Reinhart, Don Meyer, Bob Getz and many more.
