Scott talks with music teacher Hans Fenger about recordings he made of his music students singing popular songs in the mid-1970s. At that time, Mr. Fenger taught in the Langley School District outside Vancouver, British Columbia. These recordings are now available on a CD called Innocence and Despair: The Langley Schools Music Project (Bar/None Records AHAON-122). We also hear from Sheila Behman, one of Mr. Fenger's students who appears as a soloist on the CD.
