Just as Edward Snowden, Julian Assange, and Deep Throat are among the famous "leakers" in history. We are pleased to able to add one of own to the list.
And just as Deep Throat's identity remained secret for many years, our source, too, needs to have his/her identify protected. As you can imagine, HVBA members have been sworn to secrecy in order to protect the safety of this valuable source. If necessary, the editor of our website may simply have to serve a long prison term for the sake of protecting the First Amendment (Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right ……).
So … what exactly WAS Dick Bowden's response when he was informed of the leak? It is no surprise that Dick firmly pleaded with us to not to use REAL names, stating: “We're sensitive about that. Tell [the editor] it's Witness Protection kind of stuff... "
Are you kidding, Dick? There is simply NO way that the HVBA wants to keep this news from the public. Our members need to know these kinds of secrets. Some day, maybe a movie will even be written called the “Inside the Mind of an HVBA Leaker” or “Citizen Five” and, by then, we’re sure that even Dick will understand.
Ah, seriously, it is too early to leak the names and so we’ve gone ahead and warned our own "Deep Throat" to be prepared to head for Russia. In the meantime, see if you can name the band’s members.
Dick Bowden's Flying Circus
The well-known bluegrass musician and band leader, Dick Bowden, having learnt the hard way that there is more money in booking bluegrass than playing it, has formed a Light Entertainment Squadron (detached) known as Dick Bowden’s Flying Circus. Without a doubt, it is something completely different in the bluegrass field! (Wink wink, nudge nudge, say no more, say no more.)
Mr. Bowden, as impresario, has combed the ranks of the services of the Allies and gathered together a number of the finest talents in bluegrass music and military aeronautical science. (Total number currently approaching reinforced battalion strength.) Due to the exacting and exhausting nature of the Flying Circus programme, show assignments are rotated among these many brave volunteers.
The Manor at Woodside
All of our jam sessions feature the Slow Jam, which happens during the first 60 minutes. From 6:30 to 7:00, we invite you to play at a sane pace in a supportive, non-competitive environment. The regular jam lasts the full four hours.
