Thread Name: Byron Berline's shop burns down
Subject: RE: Byron Berline's shop burns down
The Guthrie OK Fire Department found a fireproof safe under the rubble. Byron was there when they opened it. Among many totalled instruments was a miraculous survivor, his 1924 Lloyd Loar mandolin. There's a very moving video going around on FB of Byron slowly, almost reluctantly opening the case and then yelling in astonishment and holding it to his chest, nearly in tears. I'll try to post a link.
