Give the Drummer Some's
6 Favorite Downloads from the MP3 Blogosphere
For this first post of September, here's a pop quiz to pump up that back-to-school spirit: What do Patsy Cline's fellow plane-crash victim Hawkshaw Hawkins, elegant early jazz arranger/band leader Don Redman and "Brady Bunch"-theme composer Frank DeVol all have in common? Give up? They are all 2009 inductees into the West Virginia Music Hall of Fame. (Soupy Sales was considered, but didn't make the cut.)
Inspired by a recent week spent feeding chickens and downing buckwheat cakes in the Mountain State, the Miner is kicking off this week's selections with yet another WVMHOF '09 inductee, the Bailes Brothers. Why, they're just like West Virginia's motto: Wild and wonderful.
