    Re: One more banjo question

    I like Ome banjos. But they’re made in pretty limited quantities and can be difficult to come by. I have four Ome banjos; two that I use for clawhammer. The one I use the most is a 2005 Ome Custom...

    It’s admirable that folks offer sensible guidance. That said, if I was looking for an upper tier mandolin, I personally would enjoy playing a Randy Wood. Such a wonderful voice and so eminently...

    Re: Woodstock


    For me in the 60s and early 70s, it was WLS (John Landecker) out of Chicago and KAAY (Beaker Street with Clyde Clifford) out of Little Rock. Both 100,000 watt AM stations. Both introduced me to...
