C92-9: Jay and Peggy Smith, Bill and Jean Hewitt, and Dr. Russell Reaver continue talking about the early days of the Festival. Dr. Reaver particularly remembers Uncle Mose Miles as the first storyteller, and the others discuss folk tales such as "Hunting the Chrismas Baby" and "Skeleton in the Tree"; remembering their favorite acts; discussing storytelling traditions. C92-10: Jay and Peggy Smith and Dr. Reaver continue discussing folktales and their role in culture. When the Smith's leave, Dr. Russel tells a story: "Henry and the Pole-Vaulting Fish".
