The thing about your blog is that it makes me instantly want to download all the music you write about. I had never heard of Earl Swope until 5 minutes ago. Now I need -- not just want -- to hear him. That's a great service to the music.

George Swope

Earl and Robert Swope were my uncles. I remember as a kid, them coming to our house and playing in the basement. Very exciting to know that they are both remembered. Earl also played in the Redskins band. To bad both of them passed away so young. Thanks. George.
