Industrial Musicals
"The Bathrooms Are Coming"?  "Diesel Dazzle"?  "Got to Investigate Silicones"?  When Letterman writer Steve Young began finding obscure corporate musicals while gathering albums for the "Dave's Record Collection" segment, he had no idea of the journey he was beginning.  Now, twenty years and one book later, Steve is the world's authority on the bizarrely entertaining shows created for company conventions and sales meetings from the 1950s to the 1980s.  He's been a guest on NPR's "Fresh Air" and Dave Letterman's "Late Show," he does presentations at conventions and festivals, and he loves to screen ultra-rare films from his collection.   Thrill to in-house musical propaganda from General Electric, Kelloggs, Citgo, American-Standard, Purina, and more, with Steves informative and hilarious commentary.  Its a secret world of Americana that will astonish, amuse, perplexand make you want to get out there and sell something!
