Episode 3: David Raitt

Dec 3, 2018

November 29, 2018 -- In our third episode of Promise of Paradise back to the land oral histories of Mendocino County, we'll hear from David Raitt, of Udder Truth Dairy and Lumber Company, the Yurt People, and, of course, Hansen and Raitt. He shares stories of building yurts, demolishing an old high school in Ukiah, and the math teacher who inspired him. We'll also hear some of the highlights from his performing career, which include singing "Who is Your Guru" for a crowd of drunk realtors and standing on his head in front of a crowd from sheer delight. There are lots of musical treats in this one, from a capella renditions of an old Chevy commercial to a recording of a live performance of the Class K anthem. We're also tucking in a short 'teaser' piece, if you've just got a few minutes.
