Striking a Chord

That's exactly what the CHS class of '50's outstanding video presentation did! As of today (Feb. 29, 2008) the counter has registered over 100 "hits;" meaning that over 100 people have watched the show on their computers!



And it has only been up on this site for a few days!



Obviously, it really struck a "chord" with us CHS seniors.



Speaking of music, (I learned to make transitions like that in Radio School)
"Do you know what time Hit is?"

There's a new book out titled: "THE WBT BRIARHOPPERS, Eight Decades of a Bluegrass Band Made for Radio."

It's by Tom and Lucy Warlick......and you can order it through: http://www.mcfarlandpub.com/

It's a paperback so it shouldn't be very expensive, but anytime I can get hold of 53 photos and 215 pages about my earliest musician heros......I'm going to do it!



This is also a good opportunity for me to bragg about one of my favorite photos:






(Ed and Whitey (of Whitey and Hogan fame)









Incidentally, Whitey's (Roy Grant) daughter Yvonne was in the CHS orchestra (she was a freshman when we were seniors) and was a fine musician in her own right. This picture was taken about 5 years ago. I think Whitey is one of the two surviving members of the original group.
