Ralph Lee Smith Interview Podcast

I've attached a link to a podcast interview someone did with Ralph Lee Smith.  It is basically a summary of the mountain dulcimer's history and Ralph's journey beginning in Greenwich Village in 1957.  The program is about 35 minutes in length.  There are two parts to the podcast.  The first seven minutes or so is about a coffin maker.  The remainder is an interview with Ralph.  Nice introduction to dulcimer history.  To place it in context, it is slightly dated having been recorded about the same time as the release of the Second Edition of Ralph's book, Appalachian Dulcimer Traditions.  But it is always great to hear Ralph explain his journey in his own words.
