This Day In History: 1938-03-01
The Mahwah School’s new hillbilly band gave its first performance. Supervising Principal Robert C. Fagan had wanted a small school band for some time so he secured Mr. McLean as advisor and Mrs. Irving Tiedman as coach. The members of the group were Albert Boursault and Norma DeGroat, harmonica, Robert Sheret, guitar, Donald Tilley, drums, Henry Radesky, banjo, Florence Jones, piano. Margaret Salling doubled on the piano and the banjo.
