Recordings in this episode are machinery from spring cleaning and a grange party. Yes, there are granges in Lullaby Utopia, it is there where you find the best marshmallow fluff you've had in your life and the wood creaks good too.
At this particular grange, a guy went up to the piano said "y'all want to sing some songs?" and before people could even say "heck yeah brother" he's playing tunes that somehow everybody but me knows the words to. I said "holy moly" and ran out to get my recording equipment, but I had some trouble getting to my car because an Australian (who made it onto one of the recordings in the episode) ran over a tree. By the time I managed to get back I had missed it but witnessing it first hand definitely left an impression on me. I did get a little bit of a guitar player though doing sort of the same thing.
See you next week!
