The answer to, and winner (if any) for, our last contest question of:
Mop Top fans know that the Beatles may have gotten their name, from Buddy Holly and the Crickets. Buddy was a lot bigger in England than here.
This week’s question is who did Buddy Holly get the name the Crickets from???

THIS WEEK’S QUESTION
How do you get to Carnegie Hall? Practice!
Carnegie Hall is the ultimate place for serious music and musicians.
Being the first of the year, the Musea art question should fit. That’s why it’s all about the opening night at Carnegie Hall. It featured a program of work by Tchaikovsky. Who conducted that first nights program, in other words, who was the first star to play Carnegie Hall? Good Luck!
FINE PRINT: The CD prize is only available to those with mailing addresses in the US. Foreign winners will have to settle for the miniscule fame alone, and the satisfaction of a job well done. But don’t forget you can listen to all the music on the website, whether you won or lost – and I’d be glad if you did!
Readers, IF you like these puzzles and would like to resend them to friends, post them on any newsgroup, or any website, please do so. The more the merrier! For tons of past quizzes go to, the musea website at musea.us or the Musea blog at musea.wordpress.com And don’t forget the music/videos at hunkasaurus.com http://www.youtube.com/TomHendricksMusea (all my videos)

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 13,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 5 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
The Animals assembled for their monthly get together
“Imagine a world without any color ….:
said a Pheasant, our noted guest speaker.
“So what?” “Wouldn’t mind.”, And other interruptions
said the Crow, the Zebra, and the Dalmatians.
The Beetles, Spider, and Crickets chirped up.
The Pheasant raised his feather, “OK that’s enough;
Peacock, Parrot, time to speak up!”
I started counting the stars
shinning outside my window
but fell asleep …
And when I awoke
they were gone.
when you learn to read
that warehouse of paper
marked with stains
open to worlds
left and right
My mother, when I was young,
mostly, left me alone
to run and play where I wanted to
feeling the wind brace it’s nerve to defy
my gangly, racing, fist shaking, joy!
