Ralph, I and my buddy probably heard you just about every time you were singing.  we practically lived at the YBH.  I had a girl friend who was a bar tender also had a girl friend who was a dancer up stairs.  I was in boot camp when the Korean war started.  Stationed in Tokyo for two years then transferred to Yokosuka in 1952 and 1953  worked in communications and had lots of liberty.  We would go there at ten in the am and they would let us in and we taught them to make french fries.  You are about the first guy to remember the Yokosuka beer hall.
