Albert ("Al") Gober, husband of my great-aunt Birutha (née Waitkunas) was a musician, mostly in "big bands" of the 30's & 40's.
After he died, his saxophone and clarinet (both Selmer) were handed over to my family, and I played this saxophone for several years. The clarinet wasn't as good but still served well as my starting instrument, and I used it until high school. If there's anyone to blame for me being in the music business now, it is my great-uncle Al.
