Hero In the Family

Can this blog be revived? It’s an open and unresolved question. But when a dear relative gets labeled a “folk hero” in the local press, that will jolt anyone possessing a drop of blogger’s blood to get back on the keyboard and crank out a post.

Brother-in-law Bob Blackman, a family treasure and Holiday Supplier of untold quantities of quality gift music over the years, is celebrating the twentieth anniversary of his folk-music show on Michigan Public Radio.

The Lansing State Journal has a nice article about it and honors him with the folk hero label in its headline.

Bob knows everything there is to know about the subject, and it’s great to see him get the recognition he deserves with a special concert being given tonight in his honor.

Wish I could be there, bro! It’s an honor to have you in the family.
