Letter: A generous 'Oasis' moment remembered

The closing of the Oasis brings up a memory.

It was fall of 1955. I had the responsibility to get a piano to Rudy's Beer Garden on Alpine Road for a Stanford outing.

Turk Murphy's jazz band was coming and Rudy's outside grounds had no piano.

Oasis said we could borrow their mammoth upright. Somehow two of us got the piano onto a truck and out Alpine Road, where the music was enjoyed.

I have no recollection how or when we got it back to them. How generous was Oasis management.
