is singing a song on the Sirius Bluegrass channel. Sure do enjoy that! Glad to say I've seen him in person a couple times.

I did the engineering work when Mac Wiseman cut
his first tunes for Randy Wood's Dot Record label
in the studios of radio station WHIN Gallatin,
Tennessee in 1952 and 1953. "I Wonder How The Old Folks Are At Home", "Jimmy Brown The News Boy"
and "Tis Sweet To Be Remembered", to name a few.

Heyyy Les, growing up in E Tn., about 20 miles or so from Bristol, I grew up listining to him on Bristol Radio. He did a fifteen minute stint on a noon time show called Farm and Funtime. There was a another group you'll know that performed during that same time slot. That would be Carter and Ralph Stanley and the Clinch Mt. Boys.......gfp (Born raised and will die a Bluegrasser)

Ps: Right now I playing a religious CD by George Jones. When it's finished I think I put on one by the Blake Mountain Boys.

OK you bluegrassers, here's a challenge for you. Describe the "high lonesome sound" in words.

A spine tingleing pure and heartfelt sound that can only come from those that have lived it. Tears well up and a rush comes over me when playing or listening to it that money can't buy! If I could bottle that feeling......

I LOVE Ralph Stanley, his voice is haunting, I just love anything he sings. Anything

Don't let Ginny know you think she's one of the "Boys". If it wasn't for her we wouldn't be much.
Won't be the last time we're called that.
