Wow! You guys are stirring up a lot of old memories for us. We went to The Folk Music Center dozens of times and Bev bought her Martin 000-28 there. The owners, Charles and Dorothy Chase, had concerts at their house and we remember seeing Jean Ritchie and Earl Robinson there. And, we were stalwart members of the Claremont Guitar club which they started.

And, the Fret House! They changed ownership many years ago but the previous owners were good friends of ours. We lived within walking distance (at least when we were a little younger) of the shop. They restored Jerry's Martin D-35 after a tragic accident which nearly destroyed it. There was a regular concert series there and we played it a time or two.

And the Penny University. We can remember seeing Mary McCaslin there about fifty (yes, fifty) years ago!

We didn't realize there were so many 'catters from the L.A. area.
