Episode Description:

Synopsis of The humble Farmer TV show for November 22, 2015

You may be amazed when you read this email from Sherrie Benner in Gorham, Maine dated October 27, 2015: “I was watching channel 2 for my public service ad for my running for Gorham Town Council. I came across your show and I was mesmerized. You have a new fan. Loved the music and the personality. Sherrie Benner”

Thank you for looking at a program called “Blueberries and Apples, a Maine Reality Show.”

56 minutes. This show includes 3.38 minutes of guitar virtuoso Denny Breau and Mark “Guitar” Miller at a show in Lewiston, Maine.

Although The humble Farmer is just as contrived as any reality show, here you will see no overweight people with tattoos pretending to repossess automobiles or emaciated wealthy models getting a massage. But don’t give up. In this show you will see humble anxiously raking his blueberry field before 21 turkeys can swoop in and clean out the berries. humble then gets Marsha’s grandchildren to pick up apples to feed the animals.

Well received in Northern New England as a radio show for 37 years, this is the same old fashioned music and humorous social commentary show that has delighted young and old alike every week since April 6, 1978 for radio --- and now for television.

Most of the video over the music is of humble raking blueberries and picking up apples. It is about as exciting as watching paint dry. But this is not a show to be watched but to be listened to. It is, and always has been, a radio show adapted for television.

Music is by: Clark Terry, Sonny Stitt, Hoagy Carmichael, Paul Desmond, Ron Carter, Oscar Peterson Nat King Cole, Mark “Guitar” Miller and Denny Breau.

Tame fare, you say, for viewers expecting someone to be shot, arrested, blown up or sink while paddling inside a 1,000 pound pumpkin.

The show is tightly scripted. It starts out with the cows hanging out in the east field. The show ends, as usual, with the Keystone Cops driving a car off the end of a dock.
+
The humorous and/or informative commentary that humble delivers between the songs is not approximated below as usual, because in a rush to get this show on line humble used 10 rants that he salvaged while cleaning out his computer. They have been used on earlier shows, but who is going to notice? To dig out the script would entail rooting them out of hundreds of others in humble’s computer.

These TV shows are now being posted on YouTube under Robert Karl Skoglund.

The radio version of this show now covers metropolitan New York City on WFDU.
