Many happy returns to those born on a Leap Year day. :-)

Are there any forum members in the club? There must be a few of you here. ;-)

Hmm.. Jimmy Dorsey, clarinet/sax, band leader, was born on February 29th 1904, and would have been 100 yesterday if still alive.

The next HTOTW should be about him to celebrate his contribution to the music scene of the 20s/30s :)

He would be 25 don't you mean? ;-)

Why, thank you Mike. :-)

Actually, it wasn't my own birthday but I do know of three people who are Leap Year babies so I know they are not all that uncommon. I used to feel sorry for them when I was a kid, missing out on annual birthdays, but as an adult I now rather envy them having one every four years. :D
