Additional Bowden Comments

The first such “college program” I ever heard of was South Plains and I thought it was sort of “mythical” until I met Mike Bub, bass player for the Del McCoury Band. He had attended South Plains. I guess ETSU and Berklee would be the two most famous today.

  • I think the answer is “F”. Missed last week because we had no power or internet until Saturday due to the storm.

  • I want to pose a sincere question to parents of college-age kids. Really, honestly, would you cough up $40,000+++ to send your little scholar to college to study BLUEGRASS??? Maybe you’ve heard the old joke about the bluegrass banjo player who had a home, a car and health insurance, CAUSE HE WAS MARRIED TO A TEACHER! Or, “what’s the second thing a banjo player asks you?” A: “Do you want fries with that?” God bless ’em if they really want to study bluegrass that badly, but REALLY?!?! Maybe it’s just me, I’m an old retired engineer.
