I can remember my college bff Billy talking about how The Music Man was The Perfect Musical. Scott mentioned his love of The Music Man on his radio show (woo kdhx, I am loving your station plenty this week) yesterday.
So get this:
I know (of) someone (a St. Louisan) whose Great Uncle was reportedly The Music Man. Yeah, like, THE Music Man Music Man. How cool is that!?
“My great uncle, Paul Franzenburg, former treasurer for the State of Iowa, spent part of his career as a traveling salesman and was friends with Meredith Willson. There’s a credible rumor that he was the Music Man.”
The midwest is the coolest.
