I was always amazed by Skitch Henderson's durability, every time I saw him mentioned in the trades and various sources for entertainment news in regards to upcoming performances.

I think the last time his name was cited - at least the last time I noticed, - was for the Macy's Fireworks Show on the Fourth of July this year.

With the New York Pops, Mr. Henderson was like the Big Apple's version of Arthur Fiedler. He was a living tribute to the musical glory days heritage of TV's "Golden Age" in the 1950s.
