About the Book

What I can tell you is, Wichita is very blessed to have popcorn on Friday’s, and for the tradition to have continued for so long. I miss and loved popcorn Friday, for not only the wonderful popped corn by Lek, but the songs that Mr. Murphy would share!
- Dan Boen (Senior Manager, Wilson, NC)

Once again, Mr. Murphy has brought to life the experience that is working at Collins. He is at once the bringer of humor and laughter, but also the mischievous jester that is always looking for more ways to bring fun to the possible doldrums of everyday work. For those of us that have been here a while, we have been through much change, and a little popcorn ditty goes a long way in bringing light and joy to the day-to-day routine. But the source songs - and the alternative lyrics - show you how much thought goes into this Friday fun. And some will surprise and delight to the point you may burst out laughing, jealous that you don’t have your own Friday popcorn song at your job!
– Dhanna Birner (Customer Service Representative)

I am John’s most vocal critic. Despite my limited background in music, having spent five years reluctantly playing trombone in junior high/high school band and no singing experience, I felt it my duty to share my opinion with John.
While I do appreciate music, I must admit that I am not an expert when it comes to singing groups or their music and I have been accused in the past of lacking knowledge in this area. I must commend John for his creativity and his boldness in entertaining others, such as his weekly performance of the popcorn r song over the intercom. I personally wouldn’t even dare to attempt such a feat. However, John, it is my sincere belief that you could benefit from voice lessons.
– Wade Klink (Avionics Technician)
