A special Father's Day edition of Grace Notes, featuring our own Buddy Michaels – actually, Buddy's dad more than Buddy. You may know Buddy as the host of our Saturday Morning Bluegrass Show, "Hometown Festival," and, storyteller that he is, after hearing him talk about his father, we persuaded him to join us in the studio on the other side of the mic to share some of those stories. Buddy's dad grew up on an Indian Reservation in Minnesota, joined the Navy during World War II, fell in love and started a family, and eventually came to own his own welding business. He taught his four sons what it means to work hard but also how to have fun and the value of doing what you enjoy and what you're good at. Although he's been gone some nine years now, his influence on Buddy is as fresh as ever.
