Philj200 Merle Watson's death (1949-1985) (22) RE: Merle Watson's death 21 Jul 00


Public Radio plays a conversation between Merle Travis and Doc Watson from time to time. From the tone of voice these great men are using, it's easy to hear the respect they have for each other.

I got the impression that they didn't know each other oersonally. And may have just met. As they chatted on mutual influences and their lives, songs they both play and love, Doc says...very caually...you know I named my son after you.

They way I remember Merle answering was after a long pause he said something along the lines of, "then we both have someone to be proud of."
