As a kid I used to listen to the great organist, Ken Griffin. My grandmother had several of his LPs, and I fell in love with the sound of him playing the Hammond organ. Through repeated listenings, I eventually memorized most of those old tunes and would play them at recitals and for local events.

Years later with the Memory Brothers, I put together a short medley of those tunes that we'd use for our opening number - we started calling it the "Elmer's Tune Medley." The selections were: Elmer's Tune, Sunday, Whispering, After You're Gone, Peg O' My Heart and Alley Cat.
