Part of the documentation of the week-long tap dancing workshop By word of foot I, presented by the Changing Times Tap Dancing Company on October 13-18, 1980. Continuing the fourth "Cocktail hour with John Bubbles," which began on *MGZIC 9-5762, Bubbles reminisces about his act Buck and Bubbles, with Ford (Buck) Washington, recounting their experiences as part of the Ziegfeld Follies. Honi Coles, who contributes reminiscences of his own about his acquaintanceship with Bubbles, joins him in delivering a joke from the repertory of Buck and Bubbles. Bubbles also discusses facility in learning steps, telling an anecdote about how he taught Fred Astaire via Marilyn Miller; his friendship with Chuck Green, whom he assisted with his act Chuck and Chuckles; and his schooling. This session continues on *MGZIC 9-5726.
