Program Notes

The Billboard March was dedicated to the general amusement paper of the same name and published in 1901. Until its outdoor entertainment section was succeeded by Amusement Business in 1961, Billboard remained pre-eminent it its field. Klohr didn’t think much of the march at first, but conceded it was a success after the royalties paid for his home in Cincinnati. The trio is still well known as a show-business emblem, accompanying everything from circus parades to stand-up comedians’ entrances.
