School Alma Mater

I might be a ding-a-ling, but I agree with Chuck Berry. We must play our Alma Mater. The first time I heard these words, they were spoken by a 12-year-old juvenile who was in solitary confinement in Ventura County Correctional Facility for taking the fall of a younger brother when Chuck Berry's Ding-a-Ling song first came out in 1972.

As a teenager, Chuck Berry was interested in music from an early age and gave his first public performance at Sumner High School in Missouri. While still in school, he was convicted of armed robbery and spent three years in a juvenile reformatory from 1944 to 1947.

I believe the people are right . . . so let me repeat it. We must play the School Alma Mater.
