[Leo sitting on stage]
LEO:Geez, I can see every one of you in here. And that's really horrifying.[Leo plays "Regards from Chuck Pink"]
LEO:This sounds like someone Faulkner could have invented -- the character or characters in this song. I don't know if I mentioned this here before or not, but I visited his grave recently, and it was a big let down. How many -- let's see, there aren't a lot of Jimmy Driftwood fans here, how about Faulkner? Are there any Faulkner people here? [some applause] So if you've read him you know that you expect more from him than your average corpse. You really do, you expect somehting to happen when you go to the grave. And it is just as hard to find as you've been told that it is.[Leo plays "Room at the Top of the Stair"]
Beyond that, the only human I've known at the top of any set of stairs was about -- she had to have been about 65 or so and I was about five and I would go upstairs and look at her stamp collection. Suffused with romance. It's a lot better than visiting Faulkner's grave.
LEO:I think the first time that I played in Texas -- which was at the Armadillo World Headquarters in Dallas, Texas [applause] -- I played this song and I am still nuts about it.[Leo plays "The Last Steam Engine Train"]
[Second segment featuring Leo, from the same show but broadcast later]
[Leo plays "I Yell at Traffic"]
LEO:This is a song that I wrote for a children's show.[Leo plays "Don't Call Me Ray"]
