I'm delighted that you checked out my piece on the steel-slide connection and posted a link here! I cite some of your work on Sylvester Weaver in my forthcoming book on the history of the Hawaiian guitar (spring 2016, UNC Press). Anyway, wow– I had never come across the Hauulea Entertainers before. What do you know about them, or Rip, Hurley & Bob? It looks like they cut four sides on June 15, 1930, in San Antonio, but that's all I can find on them. Any additional info or insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for alerting me to this!

I also add Eugene "Hideaway" Bridges (keeper of the flame?) comment:

"When I worked with him, it was the highlight of all my shows. We all will miss him, but his truth will live on."

That says it all.

I'm glad to see the station pay proper respect to B. We were friends for over fifty years, and he has always been the NICEST man in show business. I'll miss him.

Regarding the Mable Hillery Xtra LP.

I fear that as long as the dreaded "n word" appears so prominently on the front cover along with the use of the term in her song, reissue on CD (or any other medium) it's doomed to sink without trace.

How and why these ladies were forgotten and how they reemerged? I'm writing a research paper. Thanks!

Nice show… a few question marks, though. To these ears, Ed Andrews does not play a 12 but is in an open tuning. Louis Lasky sounds to me that he's playing a Gibson Harp Guitar, and unsure about Julius Daniel… Do not have access to Seth Richard at the moment. Lonnie Johnson I think played a ten string guitar and not a twelve, to get technical! Keep them shows a'comin'!

The from-behind shot of John Hurt with his semi-bowler stingy-brim hat is correctly identified. The other photo further down and labelled as Hurt does not look like him at all,,, and not just the atypical hat! Skip??
