    Great show so far! I would love to ear some MAX OCHS, Phil’s finger-picking cousin. Still alive and picking in Maryland! Max was an original member of the Seventh Sons; an early 60s influential raga-folk rock group in Greenwich Village. Known for backing Fred Neil.

    Thanks for the show! I requested Lila Nelson, “Dance With A Stranger” earlier–found her on FB and told her to send some mp3s! I think she lives in Oakland now. Here’s a link to the song on her bandcamp page: https://lilanelson.bandcamp.com/track/dance-with-a-stranger
