The Oral History session with town electrician Merlin Jebb. It's a fish tale partly told by song. Also includes a tour of Slumberland's substation. There's an ever-present hum in the building that annoys a sound man like Thomas Edward M. Also a mysterious green glowing power source, left running by the island's long-vanished resident genius, Stig Gorgonsdottir. His brother Sigmund once visited Slumberland and helped build the Community Dome. "Siggy" also left behind some data tapes.
