Their music was a big part of my early childhood.

I'd say if one didn't know the song "Tom Dooley" then I'd say they lived without music.

Nick, Bob, John..the Kingston Trio! I was/am a big fan of the Kingston Trio. Eclectic mix of funny, sad, political ad (MTA), folk, you name it. Still gotta bunch of records (NOT stereo)

The first album I bought was the Everly Bros...a 78 Lp...

I began listening to music when I found the old mans stash of 78's...and remember Les Paul and Mary Ford as well as the Kingston Trio in there..

RIP Bob Shane
