He learned classical piano and wanted to be an opera singer, and was the middleweight boxing champion of Alaska. And one drunken night in 1956 he recorded a song that you always seem to hear around this time of year.

I found this documentary while looking for another documentary about Ghoulardi. Watching it left me...Spellbound...
