Happy Birthday, Bud Herseth!

If you see Bud Herseth today, wish him a happy 86th birthday.

And you just might see him playing golf this time of year around Detroit Lakes. That part of Minnnesota has been a regular vacation destination for one of the world's greatest trumpet players, who was born in Bertha, Minnesota, but spent over fifty years as principal trumpet of the Chicago Symphony.

Listen to his incredible life story here.
