|Hi, my name is Kim
Why Doctor Sax? Long ago and far away, my son was
trying to come up with a log in name for something...Hotmail maybe.
Every login name he came up with had already been taken. Finally I
suggested Doctor Detroit. Dan Akroyd fans out there will remember
the movie by that name.
Time went by and I had occasion to come up with a login
name and I came up with Doctor Sax...more in tribute to Jack Kerouac than
with any thought to horn repair. Much later as I trained in
woodwind repair, the name Doctor Sax took on added meaning and after
asking friends and family what they thought, I finally decided to name the
business Doctor Sax. I think I still occasionally get e-mail I send
deleted unread by people who mistake the "a" in "sax"
as an "e", but other than that it has worked out pretty well for
When I started working up advertising material I succumbed
to use a picture of my grandfather. He's the dapper gent in the hat. He was neither a doctor nor a instrument
repairman, but he was reputedly descended from the Hapsburg throne. I reckon
him to be one cool dude.
The Scarier looking fellow is Alfred Crabtree. I knew a fellow who ran the Seattle Times garage whose last name was Crabtree.
I always liked the name for some reason. Alfred speaks more to Batman's butler. Combined, they were quintessentially .... something, something evocative.
Not much more to that story.
