Bluegrass Signal remembers Ralph Stanley

4 hours ago

Ralph Stanley, one of the last of the first-generation bluegrass musicians, passed away on Thursday night, so this week's "Bluegrass Signal" (Saturday, June 25th, 6:30 - 8:00 pm, with producer/host Peter Thompson) will present a memorial tribute to this wellspring of American music.

The program is based on a few of the many live recordings Ralph made with brother Carter (1946-1966) as The Stanley Brothers, and as leader of his own band, (Dr.) Ralph Stanley & the Clinch Mountain Boys, for the past 50 years.

The backstory to this week's show is almost as interesting as the story itself. That's because it came out of the San Quentin Prison Report, a unique collaboration between KALW and a group of inmates at San Quentin State Prison who are telling their own stories of life on the inside.
