Vernon Stiles

Vernon Stiles received an ovation. The audience simply couldn’t get enough of him, and Mr. Stiles worked as hard for them as it was possible to do. For his first encore he allowed the audience to select the class of song they preferred, and when the majority seemed to want an old fashioned number he announced a song the first part of which was in the classic Hebrew and last part is Yiddish. That one did stop. Then Stiles asked for another suggestion, which answered by singing “Million Miles From Nowhere.”
