SEPTEMBER 15, 2023 TRIVIA QUESTION

Who used this little “joke” somewhere under a million times, when introducing young band members to the audience?

“Now you girls and ladies, this next feller might interest you cause hasn’t yet been murdered, uh, I mean married! Well there ain’t much difference between murdered and married…when you’re murdered you go right quick, but when you’re married you kind of ooooze out, real slow.”

A. Ralph Stanley

B. Lester Flatt

C. Red Allen

D. Jesse McReynolds

E. Charlie Waller

F. Rhonda Vincent

ANSWER is “A”

Additional Bowden Comments

Ralph Stanley wore out this introduction over about 30 years. He was not a good “joker”. His voice was slow and somber. After I heard it for the tenth time or so, I became slow and somber…

Flatt had a few witty introductions up his sleeve.

Red Allen was a real wise-a$$ as an emcee.

Jesse McReynolds was bland as an emcee.

Charlie Waller was a serious emcee.

Rhonda Vincent, not much of a joker.
