"Who would believe?" - by George A. Borgman
George Borgman writes a short autobiographical blurb on January 27, 1996.
Who would believe that I would be a jazz journalist in the later years of my life? I was a lousy high school student, doing best in band and orchestra, playing clarinet, and writing for the Courier, the Normandy High School newspaper.
I played with dance bands and combos and went on to college and eventually earned a B.M. (prefer to call it B.Mus.) degree in music history and literature and a master's degree in musicology. And until now, I've never worked as a reviewer or written concerning music subjects.
I'm not writing about classical music but about traditional jazz. Amazing!
