Thread Name: Kingston trio--a place in history
Subject: RE: Kingston trio--a place in history
Add me to the list of people who were introduced to folk music by the Kingston Trio and PPM. I think they deserve a place. It does seem like whenever I tell people I do folk music they immediately say "Oh, Peter Paul and Mary. Can you do Puff the Magic Dragon"? Speaking of that, has anyone ever heard the rumor that Puff the magic dragon was really about smoking pot? "Jackie Paper" was a strange name, was that alluding to rolling a joint? We had a debate about that in the offic one day.
