Doc Watson remembered - on National Public Radio

Thanks to Louis O'Dwyer of Tullamore, Co. Offaly, for forwarding to the BIB this link to a feature on the late Doc Watson, broadcast yesterday (30 May) on National Public Radio. In nearly eight minutes it reviews Doc's career and provides plenty of his singing, talking, and playing, together with contributions by David Holt. Doc's account of the night before the funeral of his son Merle in 1985 is worth hearing all by itself.

And thanks, especially, to Mary Margaret Craford in the USA for sending this link to Louis.
