05/24/2013 (rebroadcast from 10/23/2011) - Bluegrass from 1955 is profiled in the “Starving Out” segment. From that watershed year you’ll hear Carl Story go rockabilly, Don Reno and Arthur “Guitar Boogie” Smith’s “Feudin’ Banjos,” Buzz Busby’s “Lost” (with Scotty Stoneman, Don Stover, and Charlie Waller), and a reunion of the Monroe Brothers at New River Ranch. Later in the program, pioneer female musicians Roni and Donna Stoneman and Gloria Belle ace a couple of classics from the early ‘70s, and the Dillards perform a homecoming concert with John Hartford in Salem, MO.
