The sad truth is that many people can’t whistle or they can’t whistle well. Thus, seeing someone that can pull it off is something of a treat. Part of the reason that people sit up and pay attention to an amazing whistler is that most people can whistle a little or have tried to whistle. As a result, most people can relate to the difficulty of being a finely tuned whistler.
Stating that there are not too many professional whistlers is quite a considerable understatement. Every now and then a whistler comes along that is able to make a name for himself working as a pro whistler. Roger Whittaker is often sited as being one of the first well-known whistling musicians. Whitaker released dozens of albums beginning in 1971 with his album New World in the Morning. Other well-known musicians, that dabbled in whistling, included Bing Crosby and Ronnie Ronalde among others.
