I first heard DBFS at the Birchmere (spelling?) in Alexandria in the early 1980's and have loved you guys for the first note. I went to the Mother's Day Festival at Gettysburg every year until I moved back out west in 1987. I wish you played someplace close out here, there's some bluegrass out here, but nothing as platinum as the australopithecines in your band.

I'm a dj on KMUD Garberville, in Humboldt County, and I play music from 10 to Noon on Saturdays (KMUD.org) Today played your Fifty Miles of Elbow Room, and Sailor's Return.

Good stuff. Wouldn't mind dj copies of some of your later CDs. POB 158, Alderpoint, Ca 95511. These will go into the KMUD library after I've gotten copies of the tunes I want to consider playing into my database.

We saw you for the first time at The Boys Ranch, FL. One of our friends alerted us to be sure we in our seats for your part of the show. Thought the hambone was too short. I suppose at your age you have to keep it short so you get thru the rest of the show. We really enjoyed the show. I have been wearing the hat everywhere, listening to the 2 disc cd, and keeping the knife hermetically sealed. Look forward to hearing and seeing DBFS again.

Ron,
At The Gettysberg Bluegrass Festival in either 2002 or 2003, you sang a song about a bereaved father picking up a box at a train station. You dedicated the song to your son who had just been assigned duty in Iraq. You broke the mandolin neck while playing. I actually cried and have never forgotten that moment.
I saw you after the performance and asked which cd the song was on. You said it was not on any current to that date. At a later concert you sold me a cd with the song.
A lot has happened in the intervening years. I lost the cd.
Please indicate the title of the song and which cd that song is on.
Thanks for sharing your talent,
A long time fan.
Dan Ellis

Admin reply: The song is titled "He's Coming to Us Dead." I got it from a recording made in 1936 or 37 by G.B. Grayson and Henry Whitter. It's on "DBFS Live at the Newburyport Firehouse" and "30th Anniversary." rt

Hey Ron, enjoyed your latest rant and especially your list of 5 favorite singers. Sounds like you might really like Amy Winehouse. She has everything that your other favorites have. Don't be put off by her lifestyle and off stage antics. She was the real thing. Keep doing what you are doing, you always have a real old time style and sound to your music. It is appreciated.

Ron, thanks for singing my request of Echo Mountain at Palatka, and especially your kind reference to another special storyteller, the late and much missed James King.
Much appreciated.
