One thought on “The Jim Vickers-Willis Story”

  1. Jim Vickers-Willis revered Joe Lewis, who was one of the first major touring callers. His son did a second video (excerpted in the one above) on Joe flying to Australia in 1952. Alabama Jubilee, featured in both the video above and the one below, was a Joe Lewis creation.
