Johnny Smith's birthday

Jun, 25 2012

Johnny Smith, composer of 'Walk Don't Run' was born on June 25, 1922.  Without 'Walk Don't Run' who knows where we would be today?  A generation of budding guitar players learned from Johnny Smith's composition and The Ventures' hit song from 1960.  A big thank you is due from millions of music fans.
