history in Detroit.
'As a pre-teen
singer, I remember
when it was my turn
to sing for the guests
at Jewish weddings
and other simchas
with Woolf's all-
Jewish band (Hal
Gordon at the piano). Sammy would
look at me, smile, and announce into the
mike, 'Now, direct from Durfee Junior
High, we bring you Ms. Sherry Kaye.'
"We worked on Sunday nights, making
it difficult for me to get up for school on
Monday mornings. But it was worth the
effort because I had the opportunity" to
sing with two generous and talented per-
formers, Mickey and Sammy Woolf
Now that was entertainment! And when
Mickey sang `Ich Vill Zich Shpielen' _
Wanna Play) a lot of show business . greats
would have picked up a few moves.
"Amazing that after all these years I
can still hear Mickey singing his songs
of praise and heartfelt wishes for a .
fledgling Israel, and Sammy singing
his version of the Menasha Scholnick
hit, "Sheyn Vi Di L'vonne."
(Sherry went on to national stardom
as a featured vocalist with the big
band orchestras of Billy May, Sam
Donahue and Sammy Kaye.)
KORN KORNER ... This blind guy,
wearing dark glasses, a trench coat and
using a cane, goes into a video store with
his German shepherd seeing-eye dog.
The blind guy proceeds to walk
around for a few minutes, then picks
up his dog by the tail and whirls him
around in circles above his head.
The clerk sees this alarming sight
and yells, "Hey, Mac!!! What the heck
are you doing?"
"Just looking around," answers the
OLDIE BUT GOODIE Dept. ... A
talent scout is walking down the street
and comes across a man and his dog.
The little dog is singing. He has a lovely
voice and the talent scout says to the
man, "Come to my office. I want to sign
you and this marvelous dog to a con-
tract. This dog can make us both rich."
The man brings his little dog to the
talent scout's office. The little dog is just
about to finish singing "La Donna E
Mobile" (and sounding like Luciano
Pavarotti), when a large dog runs into
the room and grabs him by the scruff of
the neck. She runs away with him in
her mouth. The talent scout yells, "Stop
her. She's taking away our fortune!" -
The man replies, sadly, "It's no use.
That's his mother. She doesn't want
him to be an entertainer. She wants
him to be a doctor." El
