A Tribute to WAMU's Jerry Gray

From 1971 until 2001, Jerry Gray hosted a bluegrass music show on weekdays and a traditional country music show on the weekends, here at WAMU 88.5.

He passed away this week at the age of 78, and some of his colleagues thought it only right that they salute the good work he did for WAMU, and the music community.

We hear excerpts from his shows and tributes from Gary Henderson, Dick Spottswood and other WAMU personalities.
