Episode Summary

Justin and Brian begin their discussion of Herbert Witherspoon's important book on singing.

Episode Notes

Herbert Witherspoon's "Fads and Fancies" is part one in a series devoted to fads of the day nearly one hundred years ago. Some of these fads are humorous, silly, and some continue to live with us to the present day. Can they be fads if they’ve lasted that long? In this episode we cover the first 10 fads from Herbert Witherspoon’s incredible 1925 book, “Singing,” published by G. Schirmer.
