Yes Sir, That's My Baby
Listener Submission: Most Unusual Wedding Music Story

Like most church organists, I have my share of wedding horror stories: the Gone with the Wind theme wedding complete with hoopskirts and parasols, the inebriated groom, the even-more inebriated mother of the bride. I can't control any of that; I can make sure the music is good.

But as a teenage church organist in Montana (and a shy, naive one at that), I didn't have many skills when it came to standing up to the demands of the overbearing wedding party. Which is how I found myself worn down by the very bossy, very pregnant bride who insisted that she would come down the aisle to, you guessed it, "Yes Sir, That's My Baby."
