Charlie Derrington Interview
February 25, 1986, shortly after Bill Monroe was reunited with his mandolin at Gibson, photojournalist Scott Wright and Dave Higgs recorded this never before seen Charlie Derrington Interview, shown working on what may be the only photos of Monroe's other mandolin (serial #72214) damaged in the November 13, 1985 vandalism.
