Welcome to Dave's Time Line of History

My name is Dave and I'm a piano player here in Miami, Florida. I focus on American popular songs from 1900 to 1949. But I also like history. So I've created a handout page of the music, events and popular culture of America in the years 1900-1949. I give it to anyone who passes by my piano. I would like to share my handout with you. Thanks to Linda for making it possible for me to share this with you. If anyone would like a copy of this in PDF format please write to me.
