May 8, 2017

GrassTalkRadio.com Episode 017

Bill Monroe and Other Tales - In this episode I finish telling the story about the semi-nightmarish, yet fun, jam session on Little Roy Lewis' back porch and then I tell about the first three times I saw Bill Monroe perform. I make my case that you cannot call yourself a bluegrasser without a working knowledge and appreciation for the man Bill Monroe, pater familias. If you don't normally go to the show notes page, this time you should! I put a ton of good stuff over there for this one. You too can experience Man or Astroman?!
