    Default Marshall Wyatt talks about Bill Monroes time in Raleigh NC

    I just recently came across this video of my friend, Marshall Wyatt, sitting on the porch of the bungalow that Bill lived in and discussing Bill and Charlie's time there. Towards the end he talks about their parting ways in Raleigh and moving on to their own careers. The house that Bill lived in is on Fillmore st, just south of the Five Points section of town.

    I think some of my (former) fellow NC pickers will enjoy it as well as other Monroe buffs.

    Hey Charley, how's it going? I'm glad I ran across this--I'll take a drive down Fillmore next time I'm over in Raleigh! Amazing the 60 sides they recorded for Bluebird all single-takes!

    Did Lester and/or Earl also live in Raleigh at one point? I seem to have heard rumor that one of them lived upstairs from what is the PR now.

    Cheers,

    Hey Zack, nice to hear from you! Hope you are well.
    It turns out that both Lester and Earl along with the Stanley Bros lived in Raleigh and did stints for the same radio station that Bill and Charlie did.

    The article does not say where they lived in town however. I might get in touch with Marshall, if anyone would know it would be him.
