Fred Bartenstein Helps Tell the Story of a Bluegrass Bluesman
Fred Bartenstein has been a bluegrass presence on the WYSO airwaves since the 1980's hosting programs such as Bluegrass Countdown and Banks of the Ohio. Recently he edited Bluegrass Bluesman: A Memoir, which captures the stories and reflections of Josh Graves, an American musician who born in 1927.
Bartenstein joins Excursions host Niki Dakota in the WYSO studio to talk about Graves' life and music and the process of compiling material for the book.
