Today’s Montgomery County Movies column brings tidings of great joy. Last week in this newspaper a story ran announcing a concert by Bob Milne, (Mill-n) “considered to be the best ragtime / boogie-woogie pianist in the world” will be held at Southmont High School this coming Sunday afternoon, August 23 at 1:30 p.m.
Well, as another remarkable MCM “coincidence” yours truly loves ragtime music and is a great fan of Mr. Milne. I’ve been to two of his concerts in Indianapolis and own four of his CD albums from which, back in the day, I played several selections on the radio.
Coincidence #2: The same yours truly has written the lyrics for a boogie-woogie song to be performed by MCM cast member Olivia McKinna while the credits are rolling at the end of the movie.
