Ear candy

Sorry! I should’ve mentioned this before. The Earl Scruggs memorial is being streamed live on WSM Nashville. It’s been going on for about half an hour now.

Some fine music, if you like that sort of thing.

sock it to me

Dame stoaty.
The special which you speak of has been burned to my dvr. I was pleased to know that Earl was born and raised in Shelby-Flint Hill, North Carolina. I recorded the show by sheer happenstance. Once i can figure out how to record this to something other than the dvr I will let you know and send you a copy. If you don’t already have a copy.

And you see the foggy mtn segment and you’ll see Steve Martin rolling the 3 finger technique. Clawhammer he does but 3 finger is the shiite.

Thanks, but I got it, Sandy. Loved the anecdotes as much as the music.

Just got the directv dvr last sunday and haven’t tried to move anything around to or from my laptops. That’ll be tomorrow. Earl by the way, replaced stringbean in Bill Monroe’s band. He and Lester Flatt both worked for Bill Monroe and split at the time.

Hence they joined Mack Wiseman and Jack Shoemaker and Flatt and Scruggs made the Foggy Mountain Boys were born.

History with a tune. Go figure.

Guess now I can start a Farcebook page fo Earl to be given the Presidential Medal of Freedom or Congressional Gold Medal. It seems the least that this race- obssessed Preznit can do. If Earl werena race baiter or community organizer he’d have the medal already.

Cool. Not real sure just yet how to transfer recordings to another drive or what have you.

Folks, the community/cause page “Presidential Medal of Freedom for Earl Scruggs” is up over at farcebook. You can look, add comments, whatever you like. Like it, too. I hope this goes somewhere and I intend to be aggressive on the part of a great North Carolinian.

We’ll see where this little campaign goes.

Sandy.

You’ll have to excuse me – I’m trying to start the Second Argentinian War in the Falklands this week.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
