John Cage, Water Walk, on I've Got a Secret, 1960

Via the New Republic's David Hajdu, here's John Cage with Gary Moore on I've Got a Secret, circa 1960, performing Water Walk, minus the sound of five radios due a union jurisdictional dispute.. Hajdu's take on the program, cultural attitudes, and Cage, himself, is worth reading, but what's perhaps most nostalgic is that this a full 9 minute, 23 second segment without commercial .interruptions.
