“Duke of Uke” Going Strong at 102

The “Duke of Uke” Bill Tapia turned 102 years old this year. And he’s still going strong. Flying all over the place to play concerts. Bringing the joy of the Ukulele to audiences the world over.

CBS News did a nice little piece on him recently. Check it out here.

Ignore the idiot reporter who says he was born in 1910. That would make Tappy 100, not 102. He obviously was born in 1908. I guess the reporter failed math in third grade.
