The latter piece will be directed by Linda C Smith, who will be coming to Seattle from N.Y. State University especially for this work.

They have toured extensively throughout the west prior to establishing residency in Seattle, last January."

KRAB arts and Crafts Fair
Arts, Craft's, folk music, and a witch in the Firehouse engine bays, Dec 1974

KPFA had held one for years, so we figured why not put all that space on the first floor of the fire station to some use. Maybe we could raise some money. So we announced the event, and Bob Weppner started getting phone calls from prospective performers - everything from bluegrass and folkmusic to the Wisdom Marionette Troupe. The person thought to be a magician turned out to be a "witch". After climbing to the stage, she proceeded to light candles, and spread some bowls of liquid around herself. As surreptitiously as possible I slipped upstairs and retrieved a fire extinguisher, just in case things should get out of hand. By the time I returned, half the crowd was cheering her on as she removed her clothing, while the rest improvised sound effects of scary wind storms. Eventually, she became discouraged, and gathering her things disappeared into the afternoon. Several months later, sometime long after midnight, I ran into her at the Hasty Tasty where she put a spell on me.

On Saturday the 14th, in the music studio upstairs Frank Ferrel "emceed" KRAB's First Giant On-the-Air Fiddler's Contest. For photos of the firestation and engine bays in earlier days, see the Dec 1974 Guide.
