Description
Nine reel to reel recordings. Reel T86-215 has very poor sound quality -- nearly inaudible. Recordings of two concerts (9/14/1985 in Leesburg on T86-214 through T86-216; and 9/15/1985 in Orlando -- at the Frontline Outreach Building -- on T85-150 through T85 -154) featuring several gospel music groups from Florida and elsewhere: Ponder Singers (Jax.); Cisrow Gospel Allstars (Millville, NJ); Washington Singers (Cocoa); Goldenaires and the Spiritualettes (Orlando); Master Keys and the Dixie Hummingbirds (Philadelphia, PA); and the Dixie Jubilees (Jax). For images of the performance, see S 1577, volume 30. For videos of both performances, see FV-115 and FV-119 (Orlando), and FV-114, FV-116 through FV-118 in S 1615.

Interview with Lee Whyms and Ken Rahming of the Key West Junkanoo Band

Date
1977-01-28
Description
One audio cassette. Whyms played the saw with a butter knife, and Rahming was a conga drum player. Interviews on side 1, recorded music on side 2. Whyms describes how he learned how to play the saw from Blackshirt, an old man from Key West; when the band was formed; how Marion Stevens discovered the band in an alley in Key West; how he plays the fine tooth crosscut saw. Rahming describes how he played the "coon-hide" drum (which was heated by fire to tune) when he first learned to play the drums at age sixteen; how his father came to Key West for the sponging industry; when he came home at night; how the Nassau-like parades began in Key West; how he visited Nassau and bought Calypso records, influencing his style of Calypso music to reflect Cuban and Bahamian characteristics; how he learned the limbo from Bill Butler; how Calypso is usually only played by men.  On side 2 they play examples of Calypso recordings, not included here due to copyright restrictions.
