The MultiMedia Page

Several areas of the  Popular Culture Excavation Site  provide access to mp3 music files, mpeg-1 movie clips, or both.  As these files are quite large, the question arises as to how well (or even whether) your computer will play them.  Those with high-speed connections will have the best experience.  Those using dial-up modems will encounter the usual delay in downloading a large file.

To improve your chances, a Windows Media Player is provided on this page.  You should be able to hear a music file or view a movie clip simply by clicking the little black right-pointing arrowhead in the media player.  If this doesn't work, click the highlighted title of the song or video to open the viewer that is associated with your computer.  If this fails, it's time to consult your browser or computer help files.

It is my pleasure to present two songs in mp3 format, neither of which is available on the Skyrockets' CD:

My Arkansas Bazooka Gal
Here is Sanford Kendrick doing something that I'll wager no other recording artist has ever done -- opening a tune with a "wah-wah" trumpet, then putting that instrument aside and switching to bazooka.  Don't miss the rousing duet at the end with Bob on clarinet.  That's the two of them providing the vocals, as well.  Be careful listening to this one.  Once the darn tune gets stuck in your head, you'll think it will never go away!

The Farmer
This song is a fine example of an old fashioned tune featuring jokes of the pun variety, a device more recently revived on the "Hee Haw" television show.  Don't miss "legacy" being mistaken for "leg I see."  Hey, hey, Farmer Grey, took another load away.
