Jive Turkey

Back in 1977, Eric Brennan attempted to break the world marathon jive record by dancing for 72 consecutive hours.  A real Canadian hero.  I would buy that man's shirt in a heartbeat.  The annotation on the back of the photograph states that Rose Pelletier was going to be his primary partner during the record attempt but that he would dance with other partners as well.  Ladies, take one look at this guy and I dare you to say no.
