    I was just sitting at my piano looking over a very old book of songs called the songs we sing by Harry Cooper Smith. I got this book when I went to Anshe emet Sunday school in Chicago. That was in the late forties and fifties. This book is falling apart but I love it and will never part with it until I pass away. Something today just made me decide to look up the name of Harry Coopersmith and that’s how I found this site.

    Joseph Brody was my great grandfather. Murray Brody was my grandfather and Joseph Brody was my father. I am Philip Joseph Brody born in Queens N.Y. My halfbrother Brian is a saxophone player. Unfortunately I think musical talent skipped me. My great grandfather died before my father was born. Unfortunately my father died around 59 years old. I’m about to be 52 so hopefully I won’t pass before my time.

    Is there any way that I can get the lyrics to Semour Rockoff’s song “Der moiled vet zein.” I know about half the words, but I no longer have the record. I’ve been searching for the lyrics for over 40 years.

    I had the extreme privilege of attending Band and Orchestra classes taught by Mr. Musiker while attending J. Madison H.S. in Brooklyn, N.Y., from ’63-’65. I, with my fellow percussionists, listened and learned about music, ensembles, and respect, …all lessons taught by Mr. Musiker.
    I am so happy to read of his successes. He deserves them all.
    Mr. Musiker, you are COOL
    with affection,
    Steve Sonshine, Reg. Archt.
