It was back in the late 50's that Walt first got hooked on the keyboard. Richmond's own Eddie Weaver had a live radio show playing the Hammond Organ on Sunday afternoons on WRNL. Walt was living in Fredericksburg then and would nerver miss a single show !
As Walt's passion for the organ continued to grow he soon started formal instruction here in Richmond at the Hammond Organ Studios with Mrs. Gay B. Campbell. She was Walt's greatest influence in his musical life outside of Eddie Weaver . Because of the distance from Fredericksburg he would receive his instruction every other week being driven the 50 miles ( one way ) by his father.
It was a wonderful experience for Walt to visit the Miller & Rhodes Tea Room and the Byrd Theatre to hear Eddie and helped foster his love for music and the keyboard in particular. Ethel Smith , Lenny Dee and Earl Grant were other performers of the day that had a great influence on Walt's interest in the keyboard as well.
As part of Walt's instruction Mrs. Campbell gave him an keen understanding of the pleasure of playing for the enjoyment of others. He would perform at the State Fair of Virginia for many years through his late teens. Then in his early 20's Walt would start performing in local restaurants such as The Sea Island where his Hammond X- 77 console was placed on the revolving stage weekly.
