CW – Clifford Wedge

CW: People would come over at night. There was no radio then. There was no television. There was nothing. Just people sitting down, they'd play the violin and sing songs. They'd just have an evening.

KP: Yes. And squares?

CW: Square dancing. But what mostly would happen, they'd go out playing cards and somebody was able to play the violin, and they'd land – I remember them landing home at my God, 11:30 at night. And they'd all decide to have a dance and they'd come and have a hell of a time until about 2 o'clock in the morning, and so on. That was their entertainment in them days.
