In this 1976 interview, Bob Moore discusses working as a tool dresser on oil rigs in the early 1900s in northern Oklahoma at a time prior to electricity, when rigs were built of wood, powered by a steam engine, and lighted at night by burning pots of crude oil. He also describes going to dances in Yale, Oklahoma in his spare time and calls a square dance named “Two Little Sisters” for the interviewer.
