Thread Name: Dave Van Ronk Day
Subject: RE: Dave Van Ronk Day
Sunday night's show was outstanding.
I met Odetta before the show, too. She was out of this world!!!

Dave really touched so many people, both directly and indirectly. And I'm looking forward to his memoirs being published.
Suzanne Vega read excerpts between performers on Sunday. It's gonna be one hoot of a book.

I forget exactly who it was, this was a funny anecdote ... she was a student of DVR's who also lived across the street. Dave calls her up and asks "What are you doing, you busy?"
and she says "I'm actually watching a documentary on World War II."
Dave: "Well come on over then, I'll tell you how it ends!"

He was an extremely witty dude.   

If anyone wants to chat about DVR, drop me a line on PM.
