• Thank-you so VERY much for your insights into the importance of Uncle Lionel and his contributions to the music of this GREAT city. You both have dug deep, and the result is one of the BEST interviews I have ever read in Offbeat (and that’s sayin’ somethin’). And HUGE props to Kid Merv for sharing his experiences, and his love for the man.
    If one was lucky enough to accompany Uncle Lionel on one of his afternoon strolls, you were walkin’ with a mountain.
    Keep on keepin’ on. Unc would have wanted it that way. Bon ton roulette!
