Robert Hale
retired school teacher Married 3 1964-65? alto clarinet Guitar, harmonica, pedal steel guitar, autoharp. Film and television credits with pedal steel and harmonica. Radio and television announcer and producer in 4 states and 2 foreign countries. 10 years elementary school teacher.
I had been studying Bb clarinet with Russ Kline, at the Franklin house, for a while when he invited me to join the youth band. He provided the alto clarinet for me to play, and offered a scholarship for me to join. 
One day we had an outdoor public performance, and in the few minutes before we took our seats, I stood near a group of guys in the band. I was new and didn't say much, but wanted to associate with other older band members. One of them spotted me and started badgering me with questions like "What are you doing here? Do you think you are cool, or something?" Startled by the barage, I just stood there with no answer.
I was tall for my age and this mouthy shorter boy walked up and punched me in the nose, causing a nosebleed that ran all over my white shirt.
Parents quickly stepped in and whisked me off to a public park restroom to rinse my shirt and get me ready to perform. Russ was probably not even aware of all this at the time. I played the concert in a wet white shirt under my maroon tux coat, face still buzzing from the blow of the fist.
Later I learned that the bully's family was a generous donor to the band, but I was dismissed from the group for "fighting." No inquiry, no witnesses, no questions asked. If the bully recieved any dicipline, I never learned of it.
I learned that Russ Kline "followed the money."

Lots of fun! Met great friends!  Best time was performing in a bedroom for a kid our age who was dying of cancer.  Had a blast in the Swing'n Senators playing "Hail to the Chief" for Gov. Reagan at his outdoor spiels. Can't get Black Saddle cadence out of my head! Send RON a MessageSend RON a Message
