I corresponded with Bill, swapped music with him, and wrote some articles for Old Time Country. He was very encouraging and highly knowledgeable, although I suspect he would have liked more money to buy albums. He said he was working on a book about Elton Britt. I was very sad to learn that he had died. I'm glad you have noted his life here.
