    Thank you for the link Jim.

    The final quote in the obituary is wonderful:
    “If you play music, life somehow takes on a new meaning and a new color,” he told the public radio station WNYC in 2012. “You become expressive in ways you never knew you could be. That is why we’re here.”

    I appeared in today's NY Times. I guess they post things the day before online.

    It took me a couple times looking at this to figure out what the white rectangle is. That's the cover over the sign being pulled off with a string - the moment after the unveiling. Very cool. As is the honor.

    Noting the anniversary of this very important--and sad-- news event we broke with Bradley Klein acting as the Cafe's ace reporter. And not the only time the Mandolin Cafe has been cited by the New York Times as a source, much to our delight. That and 50 cents will get us a cup of coffee, but it'd have to be pretty bad coffee these days. How much is a cup at Waffle House? ... never mind, it's $1.00 according to Google.

    Amen. Stan was special. I bought my first really nice instruments from him. My two main stage instruments that I still play today were purchased from Mandolin Brothers.
    "Bargain instruments are no bargains if you can't play them". These are the words of J. Garber.
