    every album he recorded and a couple of live shows I taped off the radio. During one show on KPFK he told the story of a show he did in a church hall in Halifax. Along the back wall was a group of old fishermen who stood there silently during the entire show. After the show one of the old timers walked up to him and said "Ya know Mr. Rogers, I've been going to sea boy and man for over 50 years and the Jeannie C. song says things I can only think about." Stan said it was probably the longest public speech the guy made in his entire life.
