I'm sure you've seen the music video "Love Stinks" by J. Geils Band.
You may remember a short portion of the video where early on in the video, a man is seen playing two trumpets as he hops around on a pogo stick.
I write today to tell you about this man, Wally Pikal, who __was__ still living in my neighborhood.
