What made the Banjo your chosen instrument? 10 years 1 month ago #2530

We all know the who Ralph Stanley and Bill Monroe are. Flatt and Scruggs and Ricky Skaggs as well. Does anyone remember Grandpa Jones? I remember him on the Grand Ole Opry, and on Hee Haw. Great stuff. I also remember some of my Dad's buddies that picked Banjo at my parents 25th anniversary party. Sherm and Fotch Blevins. They really fascinated me and I remember the sound so well. So anyways.................. anybody got a really cool memory? Please share!!

Wasn't Grandpa Jones the guy on Hee Haw that always mentioned what he had for dinner?
I also remember the lady with her price tag on her hat...what was her name??? Miss something.. I think! Anyway this always brings good memories as it was one of my dad's favorite show. :) (He always wanted to learn to play the banjo.)

She was a comedian you could listen to without any bleeps and she was actually funny. She always started out with Howdy. Emphasizing the last sylable. She was great. My Mother loved her. We all listened to her.
