On one  tape, Alan Grant says, "What's next, Al?", and then there
is heard the  unmistakable call of Al-the Waiter, placing his order from far
across the  room: "Son-neee! Two stingers!" Al-the-Waiter knew he was on the
radio.  Al-the-Waiter didn't miss a trick


Thanks for the wonderful Half Note remembrance. When Alan was in  Las Vegas 
hosting the Monday night jazz shows at the Four Queens he'd  often include a 
credit for "Al the bartender" in his post-set on-stage  announcements.  The line 
usually got a decent laugh, but now I know  the rest of the story.
