A Teaser

Hello, my darlings:

One of my precious followers mentioned wanting to know more about my late husband, Pete Daily, the wonderful Jazz cornetist whose Dixieland bands in Chicago and Los Angeles brought joy and happy feet to a multitude of fans through the 40's and 50's. (It is very dangerous to encourage me in that fashion, as you are about to learn).

I have been wanting for years to develop a website for him but wasn't sure just how to do it.  It just occurred to me that I could set up a Blogsite for him in the twinkling of an eye and have an immediate potential audience of at least 35, so that is what I have done.

I have not had the time to post more than the first page of a bio I wrote about him a number of years ago and I am having some technical difficulties which I will solve somehow, but I have posted the first page and if anyone cares to have a look and comment I will be thrilled.  I pulled up page 1 of my stored bio and found that it shows on the blog page in much reduced form.  However, I also found that if you click on the image you get a blown up version that is easy reading....almost too large.

I hate to whet your appetites and leave you in midsentence, so to speak, but I promise I will get all 20 some pages posted as soon as I am able, in case you want to "eat the whole thing".

The Blog is called "Pete and re. Pete" and the site address is
Do visit if you are interested.


  1. I look forward to reading about your husband Pete on the new blog.

    Margie :)

  2. Cool! (I already Googled him to learn more about him.)

  3. I visited and I fell in love!!! I cant wait to read more. Having a musician man myself who is slowly gaining some notoriety, I understand how excited you must have been in your early years, as well as the late ones. It is always amazing to have a biggest fan as a musician, and I certainly know that it's the girlfriends and wives who are, as we are there for the WHOLE process, which at times can be frustrating! I wonder if you had any times like that yourself? I would love to hear about those...It would be neat to do a collaborative post regarding this. The joys and woes of being with a musician...!!!

    Great blog for Pete so far, I am honestly truly excited to read more!
