On Saturday, Feb. 2 at noon a special “Mudlark Sampler” celebrated the life and music of Buddy Tabor. As many of you know, Buddy was diagnosed with cancer in late 2011. Host Chris Trostel and a bunch of friends including Grace Elliot, Irene Muller and Tony Tengs celebrated Buddy, while he listened from home. Friends and fans called in, live music was performed, and folks sent in emails during the show. It was a wonderful opportunity for the people who love Buddy and his music to share thoughts and memories. Buddy passed away Sunday evening, 2/5/12. He will be missed. Listen to the show here.
