conversation, produced and hosted by
Ralph Litwin, twice NJ Old Style
Banjo Champion, winner of the Uncle
Dave Macon Freewheelin' Style & 2nd place in Harmonica at
1996 Uncle Dave Macon Days, Murfreesboro, TN, and a biography

Wondering Where the Title Comes From?
The story is told in the opening montage that Big Bill
Broonzy was once asked, possibly by Studs Terkel, if he considered his blues to be folk music.
He replied: "Must be. I never heard no horses sing none of it!"
