So let's go way way back - to 1910. Are there any tunes from that year we still play?
I guess most of us have in our repertoire Washington and Lee Swing, Memphis Blues, Down By The Old Mill Stream (that used to be a favourite of Kid Thomas), Shine, Let Me Call You Sweetheart, Some of These Days and Silver Bell.
I hope there are still a few bands playing Dill Pickles.
A clarinet-playing friend makes a feature of All That I Ask of You is Love and another plays Joshua.
I don't think that's a bad crop from a year so long ago.
But does anybody still play The Spaghetti Rag? I doubt it.
