Subject: RE: Lyr Req: The Wreck of No. 52
Hi, this is a great site - I'm bookmarking it - I have that song and want to play it in conjunction with the anniversary of the tragedy on my radio show - glad to learn from this page that it was in 1933 - but wonder if my fellow Blues scholars might know the location of the wreck and the actual date, please? Thanks so much... info appreciated!

I welcome your insights and links to news stories of the event (which I could not uncover, so hoping y'all might!)
