There hasn’t been a lot of hoopla associated with Superior celebrations in recent times but that wasn’t always the case. For example, I cite the Diamond Jubilee held in September, 1950, to celebrate the town’s founding in 1875.
For that celebration, the late Oran King composed a song set to the tune of Alexander’s Rag Time Band. Mr. King was the first to publicly sing the song. He sang it as a solo but soon a quartet composed of Bill McBroom, George Day, Dick Elliott and Donn Crilly were singing the song at public gatherings. It was also said to be popular as a group number.
