Fast Folk Musical Magazine (Vol. 2, No. 6)

This edition of Fast Folk Musical Magazine is an eclectic assortment of songs about love, baseball, Philadelphia, the joys of country living (“Nixon was Nixon was Nixon, and a toke was a toke was a toke”), and a cockroach named Mahatma Gandhi. The recording includes Willie Nininger singing “The Star-Spangled Banner” at Shea Stadium before the start of a Major League baseball game. This segues into Christine Lavin singing “Ballad of a Ballgame,” a song about playing baseball as a child. A 24-page copy of the magazine is included.
