On this Fourth of July, we're going deep into our archive for some great American music. Watson, who died in 2012, was a pioneering bluegrass, country and folk guitarist and singer who changed the way people thought about mountain music. This show features parts of an interview that first aired in 1988, and a performance from 1989. Also, Ken Tucker reviews some newly released music that he likes to listen to with the volume way up.
