In case of time flying by, it seems like it was just yesterday when I first read this Eddie Dean piece about bluegrass fiddler & country DJ/historian Eddie Stubbs in The Washington City Paper. When I checked the City Paper website, it shocked me to find the story was first published in 1996.
Also from The Washington City Paper is this Christopher Flores story on D.C. bluegrass pioneer Buzz Busby from 2000.
Finally, this story about Gary Stewart has been emailed to me by a couple of different friends over the past year. It's an interesting look into the career of a singer who was once considered the "next big thing" in country music in 1970s only to fall prey to drugs and paranoia.
