The Dixieaires Quartet (circa 1965)

My Father is second from the right, the official spot for quartet baritones in the sixties. They sang at mostly churches, and my Mother and I often tagged along. Sometimes I would get to sing before they did. I'll never forget ML Moser (tenor), Ozell Patterson (lead) and Jim Easter (bass). The "quartet" kids would play outside when they rehearsed. I guess this is where Gospel music was born in me.
