The Escaped Fetal Pigs On Musical Mayhem!

My lovely dual cassette player died today.  It had been faithfully serving me and my rare cassette playing needs since the last century, so though I am sad to see it go, I can't complain.  Fortunately, the reason I bought it was to transfer some cassette recordings to digital formats I could post on the Internet and store electronically.  I did most of that in 1999-2002 and then a bit more in 2012-2013, so I have all that done, but the cassette player's passing did remind me that I should finally get rolling on another archival project I planned on doing.  Just like I had a stack of cassette audio recordings slowly working their way towards obsolescence and decay, I also have a stack of video recordings on VHS heading the same way.  So before my VCR, purchased about the same time as my dual cassette player, croaks, I have started to transfer some of the videos to digital.  This is the first one.  Filmed in 1991, it is an episode of Musical Mayhem, a cable public access show from Defiance, Ohio USA (?), which featured The Escaped Fetal Pigs.  Our friend Jimmie Frederick produced the show with a little help from our other pal Lisa Collet.  This is the introduction to the show and features the band visiting a pig farm, among other fun bits.
