When long-time Letterman writer Steve Young began gathering material for the "Dave's Record Collection" segment twenty years ago, he had no idea that he was starting a personal collecting journey into one of the least-known musical genres that ever existed: Corporate Musicals.

THE INDUSTRIAL MUSICALS MOVIE is a documentary feature film that follows Steve into this bizarre and hilarious world as he tracks down rare Industrial Show ephemera, talks to famous veterans of the scene, and considers how these mind-boggling musicals about tractors and bathtubs give us new perspective on 20th century American history and culture.
