Before radio or television – Minute 13

To live here? Well before radio or television, you know there wasn’t much to do; only read, play cards, or dance. That’s all there was to do. Nothing happened before that because people didn’t do nothing else. That was the whole thing. I can remember when I used to go to the library on Friday we’d get hundreds of other people before radio and television. And a whole pile of books to read over the weekend you know. And that’s what people did at that time – read, play cards, or dance – there wasn’t much else to do. And barn dances you know – specially right out here – just 10 miles, all of them. Darn barn dances all the time.
