Great memories! No, I didn't know you were there at that time. I thought of the Ritchie family of the Cumberlands and that seemed so far away but I did hear tell of you when Guy, Jack and I were at a folk school in Kentucky. I remember Alan Block's Sandal Shop and Elaine Starkman had one too. Pete and Toshi in the Village would have been somewhere around late forties I think, before they moved to Beacon. I guess I remember Jac Holzman as a stockbroker who played flamenco guitar at some of the parties. You must remember Jean and Francesca Raskin, Those Were The Days, pun intended. I think your work with Oscar was later wasn't it? Oscar had the definitive radio show at the time, but there was also was it Les Claypool? Billy Faer had a radio show about that time too.
Dick Greenhaus was around WS when I was there. Dick, married to Kiki?
Still, Dick? Art Rosenbaum was there. The Traums were there, Happy and Artie.
