Subject: RE: Obit: Ralph Stanley (1927-2016) Another Great Gone
I remember the Stanley kids in 1954 singing on radio station W.W.V.A. in Wheeling, West Virginia. They were playing with fiddler Ralph Mayo. Bluegrass was fresh, alive and exciting in those days and they blew me away. I think Hugh Cherry, the disc jockey presided over that program.
