I was in the Radford High school band from 1981-82 (I think that was Mr. Jordan's last year). He'd been a band teacher for the school since before my uncle was a Radford student. Back in 1962, Mr. Jordan was in charge of the entire music program (including choir classes).
If you liked Don Rickles then you liked Mr. Jordan. He was one of those teachers that you either liked him or hated him.
