RiGGy Big Known 60's folksingers (56* d) RE: Big Known 60's folksingers 03 Jan 08


Alright, I was beaten to the punch with my hero Dave Van Ronk. He WAS that exquisite Greenwich Village folk scene, alway visible and accessable. That his record cover would show him singing on the stoop of the original Folklore Center on MacDougal was so appropriate. He was often in the bar next door [ name ? ] singing for free and willing to informally show the key licks of Cocaine or another of his signature pieces. I heard He Was A Friend Of Mine on Hober.com 2 days ago and broke into tears over it. There was a NJ radio station [WNJR] that aired Jerry White's folkshow on SatNites. Somehow they got into a deal with Palisades Park, across the GW Bridge from the Upper West Side, to host a folk event every week in the Banjo Palace inside, the 35 cent admission being the only charge to attend. Dave was there every week, along with Pat Sky, Buffy, Phil Ochs, and more. I was still a teenager & got so much out of just hanging out with these heroes of mine. Especially Dave Van Ronk.

Riggy
