Re: “Why Is Nashville Called Music City?

Also, the insurance company that originally owned WSM was the National Life & Accident Insurance Company, and the call letters came from the company's slogan "We Shield Millions."
The Life & Casualty Insurance Company of Tennessee owned WLAC Radio, which first signed on in 1926.

Re: “Why Is Nashville Called Music City?

In 1872, The Fisk Jubilee Singers performed for Queen Victoria - not Queen Elizabeth. It was reportedly Queen Victoria who said to the group "You must come from the Music City..."

Re: “Phil Earhart, 1947-2005

While having my morning coffee, my wife asked if I was ever able to get in touch with Phil. I said no and that I had tried to call him several times. We looked on the internet and sadly discovered he had passed away. I had played bass & guitar in several of Phil's bands, we shared an apartment for several months and he was best man at my wedding. Phil was born to play the blues and after we left the early Anglo Saxons, Phil and I teamed up with William Patton & the Continentals. I think the band was perfect for Phil to display his masterful emulations of the Blues and R&B greats. We dodged bullets and bear bottles together for many years and I am happy that he came back one more time to record. Looking back, I think we were on the forefront of integrated bands in Nashville and thought nothing of it. Phil was color blind. With Phil, it was all about the music. If anyone knows how I can get a copy of his last LP, I would love to have it.

Randy Wood is now located in Bloomingdale, GA. He is still in business building the finest handmade fretted instruments available. He has continued the feel and vibe of the original Pickin Parlor with our smaller but equally cool "Randy Woods Pickin Parlor Concert Hall".

Re: “One So True

I was lucky enough to meet Bobby when I was a kid, living in Cresskill, NJ. My sister remained friends with him up until his death. He was a great guy and always had time to show me his "in house" studio, and the thrill was meeting Lou Rawls one day when I stopped by. RIP, Bobby!

Re: “First Love

Twain is one of my favorite authors. I am amazed at the variety of his writings. Most people think of him as a humorous novelist for works like Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn, but he wrote numerous accounts of his travels and a great deal of social commentary, speaking out on just about everything: imperialism, women's suffrage, lynchings, religion. Although he was a religious skeptic, he used religious and Biblical references frequently in his works. One work that is read infrequently is "Captain's Stormfield's Visit to Heaven." Along with "Letters From the Earth" he blows the traditional view of heaven out of the water ---or should I say sky? ---with his humorous observations. My favorite excerpt from the diaries of the Adams family is Eve's account of how milk gets into a cow. Priceless!
