Music was a part of daily life and Uncle Zeke often mentioned music in the every-day activities of Orlando. Here are a few of Uncle Zeke's reports.
“Fred Riffle has purchased a left handed German made violin from Sears Roebuck. Dick Skinner declares it looks and sounds exactly like a fiddle.”
“Fred Riffle, who is an expert fiddle player, can almost start a tune on his incubator.”
“Fred Riffle plays the fiddle just about as good as Ray Fox plays the violin. Ray would swap his violin for an automobile and take the difference in fiddles.”
