He taught for 35 years at Emory & Henry College where he used music in most all of his classes to let the “people’s voice” into the classroom. He is a long-time peace, social justice, and Appalachian activist and has seen the importance of music in people’s daily lives and struggles. <em>Although he can’t carry a tune and doesn’t play an instrument since he sold his high-school band clarinet, music is most certainly at the core of his life.</em> Being able to hear live music on a regular basis is part of what keeps him happy and sane. He has eclectic musical tastes that include Americana, alternative country, folk, blues, rock, and the explicitly political. <em>He’s been in love with Emmylou Harris for almost 40 years and plays her songs regularly on his show but she still won’t respond to his letters.</em></p></div>
