Independent Producers Jay Allison and Rachel Day take us
into the world of the side show pitchman. They deconstruct the art of the
bally -- probably the most unabashed sales pitch in recent American
history. "Building the bally," "freezing the tip," "doing a jam" -- we
hear the great barkers (the preferred term is "talkers") reveal the tricks
of their trade and lament its passing, and we hear what the young ones
are doing for a living now.
You need the free RealAudio player to listen to audio files.
