Received a e-mail from Rick Benjamin, fellow New Jersey native and Model T guy.
As some of you know, I guest-conduct two symphony orchestras in Denmark. Recently, Danish TV-2 aired a neat 8-minute segment on my silent film programs there with the Aalborg Symfoniorkester. If you're curious, need to waste 8 minutes, or just want to hear a whole bunch of people prattling on in Danish, here's the link:
Either way, Denmark is a really great place that's worth visiting. (They have good beer too.)
You may not have to brush up on your Danish, the music, Model T movie segments and Rick's comments will definitely convey the message !

DVD's of silent films with Paragon's accompaniments are available for sale.
Disclaimer : I have no monetary connection or benefit from my selfless promotion, nor will I accept in the future.....just a ragtime toe tapping appreciative music listener.... and Model T guy.
If you like that you may also enjoy Giordano's Night Hawks. Notice that Vince sings into a carbon microphone.
They have several other Youtube videos.
Familiar with Vince Giordano, he's mostly into popular fox trots of the '20's into the '30's.... also enjoy his style on the HBO series Boardwalk Empire.
Rick's orchestra covers the earlier ragtime.
Has anyone told you of your facial resemblance to that guy on "Breaking Bad" ? ...had to ask .
That's pretty good. Bryan Cranston's a lot younger than I am.
