Stupidity Div. (Criminality subsection)

The Austin Bomber made a huge mistake. Why would anyone under investigation and subject of a massive police manhunt go anywhere near Round Rock, Texas?
It's the home of one of the most famous donut shops in the country -- and everyone knows about donut shops and cops, eh?

A Little Saturday Nite Bluegrass Div (Local Color subsection)

I heard this recently on SDPB. This is from the 2017 Sioux River Folk Festival.
A Sioux Falls group The Rocky Mountain Oysters playing a reunion set. The first number is named Inventing the Sandwich.
Watch as much as you want to ....... It's a pretty good set of an hour or so ..... (I know how to start an "Embed" but not how to end one).

Their Facebook page doesn't link the members to instruments, but here are the members and I think what they're playing:
Tim Coates - Guitar, Charley Smith - Mandolin, Neil Issacson - Bass, John Donahue, Jr - Banjo and Tom Schaffer - Fiddle.

A Little Saturday Nite Bluegrass Div (learning subsection)

I've posted this before, Tony Rice doing Norman Blake's Church Street Blues. Fans and wannabe pickers -  If you're interested (and are a tablature person), there's now a transcription for the album done by Chris Brennan and there's some interest in getting someone to publish it.
