What question, Goofy!??

If you can't restate the question in straightforward, readable English, then we have to assume that there was no question, and you're just doing your thing again.


And Bobert, I'm not totally happy with the songs that Bob (Deckman) put on the archive web site, but he didn't really have much choice. Many of them were taken from his collection of miles and miles of open-reel tapes, many of which were recorded at parties, song fests, and informal hootenannies ("informal hootenannies"—that's redundant!), where we often tried out songs for the first time that we had just learned, and often they hadn't quite "jelled" yet.

Some of the ones he has of me were also on open-reel tape, home recordings off the air of the "Ballads and Books" educational television series I did in 1959. The other voice on the records is Buzz Anderson, a broadcasting student at the U. of Washington, acting as "interviewer," and asking me questions we thought the viewers might have asked if they could.

Fun shows to do!
