Musical instruments are all around us as witnessed in this week's clip wherein The Junkman uses a set of plastic shipping blocks to create beautiful sounds. (And yes, Mrs Junkman knows better than to throw anything in the recycling bin before letting her husband listen to it first!)

Have some jar lids or bottle tops handy? Join The Junkman as he shows you how to play those tops like castanets. It's so easy, you may even have time to learn the flamenco. Olé!

We like cold beverages. We like cold beverages. . . and the containers that hold them. In Salvage Super Sounds Week 8, The Junkman plays a nifty glass Spanish liqueur bottle and a plastic pitcher, both quite empty, of course. Ah, the sacrifices an artist must make for their craft.
