Thread Name: Obit: what happened to Shag Connor?
Subject: RE: Obit: what happened to Shag Connor?
(I started this thread under the name Big Byrd) I still remain a Shag Conners fan and have sought out as many of his recordings as I can find on Ebay. I play him on occasion on my radio show on a couple of public radio stations in the middle of the USA. I would be interested in hearing anything the remaining group has recorded. How are they billed? Are they still the "Carrot Crunchers"? If you know of any way they can be contacted, I'd be most appreciative for the contact information.
Th man had a voice with a kind of built-in quality that made him sound like he was going to break into a yodel at any moment---and sometimes he did!
Thanks for the information, The Roadie. I am glad to have the correct facts of his demise.
