Finally: The puzzling 4/20 Hitler's Birthday and Weed connection explained in a straightforward way, albeit auto-Godwinded.

 

Bobby Hackett was a jazz cornet player perhaps best known for his work on Jackie Gleason albums. He also had a reputation as an incredibly nice guy who never had a bad word to say about anybody. This attribute was purposely put to the test when someone asked him to comment on Adolf Hitler. Hackett's response was, "He was the best in his field."

 

A true story and no offense intended.

Check out Reiensthal's film Triumph des Willens for a gander at the "Cathedral of Light" used as a backdrop at the Nuernberg rally. Very Pink Floyd.

Gilbert here. A couple of friends checked in. One said: Little known but true- Hitler was an accomplished whistler and was known to deliver entire Wagner themes. Then it was back to business...

 

Another asked: would those be the original Heil speakers?
