I was born in Cedar Rapids on March 6, 1951, Iowa 100 years and 68 days after Signore Francesco Tamagno's birth. I first heard of him 30 years ago and began my acquisition of his recordings. It was my search for new information on him that brought me to this website. I have many original photos of him from his estate, and all his recordings. I also am a fan of American baseball player Pete Incaviglia. I believe in Jesus Christ, saved by the Grace of God through faith in His Son. It is a privilege to be a part of this community.
