Episode Summary

Peter, Paul and Mary Show
Peter, Paul and Mary sing Blowin' in the Wind. To show that a folk song can be written from any bit of folklore, they perform "Waukegan", a song they wrote based around Jack's age, cheapness, and other faults.
Jack invites the group to his home to try and talk them into recording the dreadful tune he wrote, "If You Say 'I Beg Your Pardon', Then I'll Come Back to You." When his his accompanist Ned arrives, he has PP&M sing his composition. As with every previous performer, they want nothing to do with the crummy song. Ned tells Jack it would have been a hit if they'd recorded it. Jack says not to worry; he had a tape recorder hidden in the piano.moreless
