Satchmo always got his hair cut in the salon of Monsieur Dudas in New Orleans' French Quarter. As a young, penniless artist, he ran up quite a bill there. Since he couldn't pay, he promised instead to advertise for the hairdresser. That's why he ended so many songs by "... Ah, Barber Dudas"
Submitted by: Lars
This is a true story related on the Ken Bruce show on Radio 2. Someone on a quiz show was asked who Louis Armstrong was and the guy answers 'He was the first man on the moon!' confusing him with Neil Armstrong. I just picture Satchmo on the moon, singing 'What A Wonderful World'!
