Guitarist Leo Kottke sat in with host John Schaefer for this April 1994 From the Vaults show. Kottke, the hero of 6- and 12-string guitarists everywhere, is also a fabulously entertaining storyteller. Tonight we hear some of his tall tales and short songs, like the one about the torpedo fuel in the baguette, and music for Paul Bunyan.
