For forty years I've done whatever seemed to be necessary to help keep Folk-Legacy Records afloat. Recorded people, edited tapes, done some of the graphics, written notes on the songs, packed records, answered mail, etc. Fortunately, I've always had someone else around to do the books. Until last year that was Lee Haggerty, now it's my younger son, Robin.

G'day John,

I started off adult life as a teacher - running residential Outdoor Education Centres, in various parts of NZ. Basically looking after 70+ kids (and their classroom teachers) for a week, and exposing them to "bushcraft" and the "environment".

While training (and since), I worked at all sorts of jobs - dustman, roadman, sewer worker, camera shop assistant, field biologist (forests, island and seabirds), pesticide/herbicide applicator, soldier (and anti-Vietnam protestor at the same time), folksinger, musterer, shearer, fencer (not of the foil variety), but mainly layabout.....;)

After quitting teaching 20 years back, and moving to Stewart Island, I became an Outdoor Education Consultant, writer/illustrator, eco/adventure tour guide (month long trips through NZ) and finally, like you, a professional driver....

This involved carting freight, people on bus tours and meeting planes at the local airfield, which led to..

Air Traffic Control (wet finger and windsock variety) - I met a few thousand flight's and "talked" pilots in under more-than-somewhat dubious flying conditions.

Since the company I worked for was somewhat versatile, I also did garage work, cooked in the take-aways and did a bit of work in the brewery (for some reason the boss wouldn't let me work there alone).....;)

Umm.... about that time I built a house.

In the meantime, I did a bit of acting in local shows, built a website about my home on Stewart Island. I was happy as a sandboy...;)

Abou six years ago "Fox the Boss" pulled out. I bought Billy the Bus from him. Now, I'm just a boring old bus driver - carting visitors round the 12 miles of road on Stewart Island, and telling yarns. It's a living (just)...;)

Anyway...

Looking through the above - I've spent a pretty boring 60 years on this planet. Might have to do something interesting next time round.

Cheers - Sam

I print t-shirts, mostly. Sometimes I drive around in a big van. For the last... 6 years, I guess. Before that, I was usually unemployed, or employed for very short periods of time. I don't really like to think of work as "what I do," though. It's just how I get the money to afford to do the things that I do. :)

My official job title is 'equipment tech. V'. I'm also a CHESS operator. CHESS stands for "Cornell High Energy Syncrotron Source". I'm also the CHESS chemical safety officer. The rest is detailsyawn

I live in Ithaca, NY which is "centrally isolated" in upstate NY. I love music and learning about its history. I sing---off key. I can't play a single musical instrument, but I do know how to play my CD player. I somehow have managed to collect about 1200 CD albums. Most of these albums are from people like the musicians on this forum, who love making music but have never dreamed of being on 'top 40 radio'. I also help produce folk concerts for "The Cornell Folk Song Club." Though I am not a musician, music still seems to define me more than any other single passion...except for family.

Oh, my wife is a social worker.

But I confess to spending some 20 years as a lecturer.

Your demographic isn't surprising really, most of the people of my age who were responsible for the U.K. folk boom in the sixties came from the student population, and in those days teaching was a popular route for students to take.

Started at the University of Washington majoring in English Literature with the idea of becoming a writer of brilliant, literary, best-selling novels, then fell in with a small gang of folk singers (Walt Robertson, Sandy Paton, Rae Creevey, and a couple of others) and began roaming the city armed with a guitar. I didn't leave the U. of W. entirely — I eventually changed my major to Music. Made a marginal but thoroughly enjoyable living singing here and there (some television, a batch of concerts, regular singing jobs in several coffeehouses, no records, dammit!) and teaching guitar (classic and folk).

When a lot of the coffeehouses started closing up or switching to Rock 'n' Roll and new guitar students wanted me to teach them to play R 'n' R, I packed it in and went to work at Boeing. Production Illustrator (like drafting). Boeing did its big lay-off in the early Seventies and I wound up working in broadcasting (radio announcer, newscaster, disk jockey at a classical music station). Fun job, but very unstable. Worked for eight years as a telephone operator. Fairly good pay, good bennies, but absolutely soul-killing — like being a galley-slave. Quit and went to work for the Bonneville Power Administration as a technical writer in their power conservation program. When the program changed, I quit and retired.

Still playing the guitar and singing — for fun, but I'll sing for money if it's offered. I'm doing a lot of writing these days.

I was in the US Army doing Order of Battle as an Analyst In the Ground Shop.(Im an expert on the military in North Korea in 1975.(What Are The Other Guys Doing. I became a fire claims adjustor for an insurance company. Then I went to work at a Bank and I counsel people and tell them not to Lease vehicles. I deal with a lot of help me, help me calls from people who have made poor choices in life.

There but for the Grace Of God go we. Lots of bad things happen to people, somebody has to help them.
