Jim Price asked me to write and perform a song for “Night-times Variety,” a show on the local PBS affiliate. Jim and Dave have always been heroes of mine. So far, so good.
Someone had the idea to hit a gong and lower it into a tub of water to finish the tune. Lowering a gong into water lowers the pitch about a whole step. Very cool.
Except we didn’t have a clear container for the water, so it looks like Randy is just lowering a gong into a trash basket. The audience applauds, but looks puzzled. (“Why are they lowering a gong into a plastic trash can?”)
Please note that both Dave and I used to part our hair in the middle.
