Just as the regional Barbershop Quartet contest is to be held in Mount Pilot Howard Sprague, the group's tenor, get a throat infection and can't sing. Andy and the others have won the competition for two years running and decide to hold auditions for a temporary replacement. Unable to find anyone suitable, Andy is left with the choice of letting a prisoner with a great voice - a repeat offender who does nothing but plan his escape from jail - join the group. Sure enough, just as they arrive in Mount Pilot he disappears leaving the three other members of the quartet high and dry. A chance encounter saves the day. Written by garykmcd
