This Saturday (9/15), Radio Bluegrass International (RBI), an online radio service of the International Bluegrass Music Museum, will feature portions of their interviews with Jake Quesenberry, an important figure in west coast bluegrass, and a co-founder of the California Bluegrass Association.
Jake passed away on July 3 of this year, but his reminiscences had been recorded by the IBMM as a part of their Video Oral History project. This is the museum’s crucially important mission to capture audio interviews with the early generation of bluegrass pioneers before their first hand reportage is lost to us.
Jake’s contributions to bluegrass music are fondly remembered on the Pleasant Valley Music blog site.
You can catch the RBI program on Saturday at 10:00 a.m. eastern time on the IBMM site. For now, there is no charge to access the online audio feed at RBI, but a $4/month subscription will be required starting on October 1.
