Jussicologists, Kansas City, JBS, Pat Darrow
As Dan and Gail Shea prepared for their pre-holiday drive from Wisconsin to California, it occurred to Dan that Kansas City is something of a hotbed of true Jussicologists- maybe we could all get together? So Dan called Pat Darrow and emailed Terry Williams and Ed Walter, and then Terry called Don Quinn and local opera broadcaster Jim Seaver and singers Gustavo and Sarah Halley. Everyone wanted to meet, including some spouses, so a room for 12 was arranged at a local restaurant and a talk-fest broke out. So many fine folks with amusing stories about Jussi and other operatic greats!
