Eddie Adcock on Radio Netherlands Worldwide

The European Bluegrass Blog mentioned in September 2008 the surgery which banjo-player and 'Father of Newgrass' Eddie Adcock was then undergoing to enable him to continue playing.

Thanks to Richard Thompson on the original Bluegrass Blog for the news that an eight- or nine-minute interview with Eddie by Jonathan Groubert can be heard online on Radio Netherlands Worldwide. The interview focuses on the illness, which affected Eddie for fifteen years before surgery, and on the difference made by the treatment. Memories of his experiences with the Country Gentlemen are also shared.
