I heard an interview with his son about the tour this morning on NPR Radio this morning.

They had a couple of sound clips of Warren playing too.

Yah I caught that interview on npr as well. There was this funny part where they were relaying Warrens sense of humor about his age. His wife says to him, " do you want to go upstairs and make love?" He replies, "we can do one, or the other."
:D

Probably plenty of folks! I'd like to say I was one of them, but I can't.

Warren auctioned off a Uke on Ebay a couple of years ago for the Children's Miricle Network. I remember it went for more than 10 grand for the charity.

Yup, it was a Talsma uke with a Dairy Queen theme. Dave Talsma is a very special builder here in Michigan and a friend of mine.
