Played at The Frog & Firkin in North York Ontario.


  1. Peter Nero
  2. Andre Previn
  3. Arthur Fiedler
  4. Peter Duchin
  5. George Shearing

Tonight I'm playing with Bill MADDOG, Doug CRANKY, a new guy Paul ZUKEE, and the guy from earlier this month (who pulled a Nick Drake tape out of his shopping bag at the best possible time) Mike CHIMPS and we have the top three spots. Another week of 3500 in TuneUp and 6 right, 3 wrong in OnBeat although I won the Triviaoke round.

My game so far had gone like this:
TuneUp....3500/5000...3rd/12 I'm tied with eight others...CHIMPS wins round with 4500.
OnBeat...8750/14000...5th/12...ZUKEE and TIGER win round with 6500 points, ZUKEE has lead
with 10500.
JukeBox...13064/20000...6th/12...CHIMPS wins round...ZUKEE has lead with 15131.
Triviaoke...19135/20000...3rd/11...I win this round.



Now these guys are composers or orchestra leaders? Oh well. Can I spot any of them in my Albums book? Well I waste my time reading in the current scores in my micro-recorder.

Encore Question..."Summer Of '42" and "Just For You" are albums from this jazz/classical/pop musician:

Oh oh. I should be able to find "Summer Of '42" in the soundtracks section but I can't (actually it was there but it doesn't list the artist). CHIMPS is sure of the answer and I look it up to back it up but I can't find that either as it's on the second page of that artist's album list. Good thing I don't change as on my own I might have when I don't see it. None of The Regulars were over to compare answers. I only saw Kim MOLSON/VIKING earlier who gave me a copy of the "Frosh 3" CD and gift certificate the bar won a few weeks ago.

Correct Answer:...1. Peter Nero

Second week in a row that the answer is about movie composers and it's Number 1. I'm right and stay in 3rd place. I earn 3000+ Players Plus points by meeting this week's 20000 point standard. I finish with 28703 points which is 84th in NA. The bar is 16th in North America with a 24937 average. Too bad we didn't have one more player hit it as the fifth place player had less than 10000. Doug CRANKY was between us but didn't hear Mike I guess.

Here's how the rest of the bar did:
Player	preEncore	Final	Rank
ZUKEE	20308		30462	  65
CHIMPS	19419		29129	  79
ROCKET	19135		28703	  84
TIGER	19089	x	 9545	6276
KELLY	18717	x	 9359	6349
ALKIE	18656	x	 9328	6361
MADDOG	17900		26850	 104
MOLSON	17849	x	 8925	6518
VIKING	17795	x	 8897	6529
ADAM	16619	x	 8309	6758
CRANKY	13782	x	 6891	7311

I thought it would be the Americans who wouldn't be out this weekend but all we could get going were eleven boards.

Other games:...I start the evening with 1195800+ points.
8:00pm...Countdown...10107/15000...1st/3...1000+ points...I'm 615th in NA...bar is 1623rd...(I was here for the last 14 questions).
