Don Walser, z"l

Mark Rubin is even better known in country and Texas music circles than in the Jewish music world. I relate, strongly, having lived in Texas back when Willie was relatively young and was holding Fouth of July picnics just outside of Austin. I'll compare the best country music singers with the best Yiddish singers any day of the week, no dishonor to either for both being great. So, it is with sadness, and a sense of the apppropriate, that I note Rubin's tribute to country singer? maven? mensh? All of the above? Don Walser, who died this past week, and which appears in the Austin Chronicle, www.austinchronicle.com">Song for My Father: The house that Don Walser built, 1934-2006
