He was very successful because of the trust they placed in him together with his vast knowledge of south Dade county farm land. Mort led Country Corn a professional bluegrass band in which he played the banjo and harmonica and sang. Mort played music even at 91. He loved to teach others to play the banjo. He was known for this cornball humor hence the name Pop Corn.
