This Moment In Dollar Country History

I feel that I summed it up well on my mailing list for this one:

Howdy Dollar Contrarians! Something that has been great about doing the show every other week is having time to do fun shows like this. I was adding things to the database and noticed that I had enough bluegrass from in or around Ohio to make a whole show out of it. I spent many hours researching these artists and labels so I could really present some good information, I hope that comes through in the show. In the process I've also tried to update those pages on the database.

The records on this episode have come from all over the last 8 years of the show. For the most part they've come from other Ohio collectors because if there's one group of people who love Ohio Bluegrass it's Ohio record collectors. I've met a good number of them since moving here, and appreciate them holding stuff for me.
