*An old friend of over 30 years stopped by the Fredonia Radio Systems
studio today - ragtime and blues guitar icon Andy Cohen. You don’t really
“interview” Andy Cohen; you point him in a direction or two, then just sit
back and let him share his stories and life experiences, historical facts
and anecdotes, and thoughtfully-considered opinions. He also performed five
songs (I generally request three; this is in no way a complaint!). Live
radio being what it is, wouldn’t you know he broke a string soon after
beginning  Rev Gary Davis’ “Buck Dance”, starting over after a quick
repair. He even flipped his guitar around and about a few times - not sure
how that’s going to sound on the podcast! Someone really needs to sit this
fellow down and document his vast storehouse of lore! I’m just glad I got
about 45 minutes of Andy, which I hope to have on the “General Eclectic”
website in the not-too-distant future. To the list:
