Roger McGuinn on NPR

So what did I hear today when I turned on NPR during my lunchbreak? Roger McGuinn of The Byrds talking about (among other things) Gram Parsons! McGuinn was on Talk of the Nation promoting his website and his efforts to preserve classic folk music.

National Prettyawesome Radio

You can listen to the segment here.

I recommend giving it a listen.  He tells an anecdote about having Parsons try-out for The Byrds by playing some jazz piano (!) and also has a pretty badass story about the difficulties of covering Dylan accurately.  It’s pretty amazing the stories these old warhorses have…check it out.
