Classic Banjo Radio Down

Wouldn't you know it. After announcing the new website to all of you, the computer that I am using to stream the music decided to die. Period. I am porting over the radio station to another computer and should be up and running by the end of the day.

Classic Banjo Radio

Hello everyone. Well, I have finally published my Internet Radio Station, Classic Banjo Radio. It streams 24/7 and has players for iTunes, Android, and Blackberry. There are at present approximately 500 pieces that I have cleaned up. Some of them still sound like crap but you should have heard the originals. Thanks to Ian for letting me tap into the Banjo DJ. I will be cleaning those up as well. And Jody contributed quite a few…

"Oooh!, I really enjoyed that. There are few things I like more than a well played banjo, but one of them is TWO well played banjos. There's more? yes please. Most of us here also get camera jitters. I deal with it by posting to youtube via the…"

Richard William Ineson replied to Jody Stecher's discussion Photo of Cammeyer
"I wrote about my visit to Brailsford in search of Cam, in 'The Banjo' in the 1990s, I will have a look for the relevant issue and see if there are any other details which have slipped my memory. "

Richard William Ineson replied to Jody Stecher's discussion Photo of Cammeyer
"A bit of pedantry - Cam did not die in Brailsford, when he fell ill in 1949, he was taken to the Royal Canadian Hospital (which may have been located near Maidenhead or Marlow)and he died there, I don't know why he couldn't have been…"

"Thank you Richard, for the detailed response. I have no idea why I like to read or hear about all these little details, but I certainly do.  Thank you, Ian for the Broomfield story. I wonder why he did not mention the model of banjo he got."

"As Richard correctly points out, Len Broomfield was a regular correspondent and author of articles for the BMG in the 1930-1940s and maybe longer. Here is one letter that he wrote: In our site PLAYER BIOGRAPHIES page we find: "In 1939…"

"This photograph is definitely of Cammeyer, taken at his home in Brailsford in Derbyshire, probably in 1949, the year that he died. Cammeyer moved to Brailsford on his retirement in 1938, the house was provided for him by his banjo pupil, the Hon.…"
