    Richard Himber - *MAGIC LEGENDS presented by Lee Asher*

    RICHARD HIMBER

    Richard Himber (1900 - 1966) was an American bandleader, composer, violinist, magician and practical joker.

    In his youth, he worked his way through Vaudeville and down Tin Pan Alley. Himber finally formed an orchestra of his own, parlaying a gig at New York's Essex House Hotel into national NBC radio exposure. Among the top notch professionals in its ranks were Benny Goodman, Tommy Dorsey, Artie Shaw and many other future stars of the music world.

    NEAT FACT: Richard Himber wrote the original theme for NBC's Today Show.

    But in our world of magic, Richard Himber is best remembered for inventing many magic tricks including The Himber Wallet, The Himber Ring, and The Himber Milk Pitcher.

    Watch Richard Himber perform the amazing Water Suspension on the Magic Ranch with Don Alan.

    Makes you really think. I mean the Himber wallet and ring are both fantastic TODAY. Magic that continually stays current is a rare find.

    As Brandon said....

    Yes, he's certainly worthy of knowing. However, this is the chance for me to introduce you to MAGIC LEGENDS that you might not know well, or have never heard of.

    Sound good?
