(By Rote) Richard Crowson: Long Live the Humble Banjo! http://kmuw.org/post/richard-crowson-long-live-humble-banjo <p>Comedian Steve Martin once said, “It’s impossible to play a sad song on the banjo.” That statement gets to the heart of the issue: the banjo is a happy-sounding instrument. So happy, in fact, that cartoonist Charles Schulz once had Linus say, “The way I see it, as soon as a baby is born he should be issued a banjo!”</p><p>Of course, universal banjo care of that sort would really set off the anti-socialism crowd, but I think it’d be a great government program.</p> Fri, 22 Jun 2012 14:59:04 +0000 Richard Crowson 1122 at http://kmuw.org Richard Crowson: Long Live the Humble Banjo!
