June Meeting - those famous YouTube videos

We were lucky to be joined by Klaus Harder for this session.

Malachy Gerry, Helen and I really enjoyed his songs - the ideas were so original. A story about a Space Shuttle astronaut, inspired by the finding of the diary of one the Challenger's astronauts in a forest in Texas. (Challenger was the space shuttle which burned up on re-entry...) He also sang a song about an eskimo who was brought back to New York in the early 1900's by Admiral ... - the US explorer who attempted to reach the north pole. The ironic thing about this story is that the eskimo, who was very young when first brought to New York, died in the Spanish flu epidemic.

We made some YouTube Videos:
