There’s an article over at NBC Washington by Kate Kilpatrick about walkup music. It’s been around for a while — and pro wrestling fans have been aware of it even longer — but where did it come from? Part of the answer was totally news to me:
Twenty years ago, only a few major league players had walk-up songs. These days nearly all of them do, thanks in part to a spunky young organist, a salesman’s CD collection and a transvestite prostitute named Lucille.
If that tease doesn’t get you to read the article, there’s no hope for you. And while I was well aware of the spunky young organist — Nancy Faust, pictured to the rights — how I never heard about the transvestite prostitute story — which involves Dave Stewart — is an utter mystery to me.
