Sun Kinks, Mill Baskets, and Bacon: The Occupational Folklore #Podcast

Inside the Terra Nova Motors Showroom.

In this episode of the Living Heritage Podcast, folklorists Terra Barrett and Dale Jarvis play some clips from past oral history and folklore interviews archived on Memorial University’s Digital Archives Initiative, all on the theme of work, occupations, and business. We’ve got a little bit of everything, from the Terra Nova Motors jingle with Linda Kane, to memories of mill baskets with Barbara Smith (and a mill workers recitation by Terry Penny), memories of railway disasters with Clayton Tipple and Baxter Tuck, an olfactory memory of the railway cook car with Lindo Palmer, and newspaper tales with Bryan Blackmore and Joe Moore. Plus, an update on our future Solomon’s Lane project! Let us know what you think of this style of show, and if you'd like to hear more clips from our collections!
