Good signal here. A lot of live stuff from Ricky Skagg's days with Ralph Stanley. Easily an SIO of 555, they sounded like a local MW station.

For you folks that aren't familiar with "By The Banks of The Ohio", it's based on a true story. It happened to in the area around Greenup, Kentucky in the 1790's. When I was a kid, old women would sing the song to girls as a warning to watch who they flirted with. The tone those old women sang it in would scare the crap out of you. There is an old adaptation of the folk ballad "Sweet Mary From Pike" performed in the region that refers to the murder, too.

When the water is low on that stretch of the Ohio you can see the rocks where the murder took place on the Kentucky side. They're barely under the water at low pool.
