|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Mister Rogers uses a cassette player to share examples of both jazz music and classical music. He shows pictures of those playing both styles before drawing on an easel as he listens to the cassette.
Visiting Joe Negri's Music Shop, Mister Rogers watches as the jazz combo which performed in Make-Believe the previous day practices in the rehearsal room.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Mr. McFeely has a gold bass fiddle but he cannot read the address on the tag. As he asks around the Neighborhood, he receives various suggestions from those he asks. Lady Aberlin suggests it may belong to her uncle and Daniel thinks it might be for "Prince Tuesday's daddy." Henrietta Pussycat thinks it belongs to the "man for whom she babysits" and X the Owl suggests "the king." After Queen Sara Saturday mentions that it may be for her husband, King Friday XIII confirms that he is all of those people described throughout the Neighborhood.
Trying out the new fiddle, King Friday realizes that having a gold fiddle does not make a talented musician. He must practice in order to get better.
Back at the house, Mister Rogers sings Look and Listen.
