I still have an old Tascam Portastudio like that - it still works but I don't have a regular cassette deck to copy the songs to anymore and I haven't invested in any digital transfer gadgetry.

At least you can do that. I diligently put a lot of my past digital life onto Zips and now I can't find anyone to read them. I would ask you, but I can't decipher my disk-naming scheme so I don't know if the disks I have are the ones I care about. And by "care about," I mean "mildly curious about." So whatever's there, except for nostalgia, I would be better off re-building or forgetting about. Hell, half of it's probably in (Aldus) Freehand™

It's like that Mariah Carey Christmas song; I thought that was a cover of something from the 50s... it's just so pop-perfect it feels like I've known it forever... and maybe we did: Bob Dylan wrote the chorus in the 70s. Did it get used somewhere else in another song? I dunno.

Nope. Also; where's the fiddle player?
 
I've never heard it before either. I only play music I want to hear and that one doesn't come up in any rotation the stations I listen to play. Now after listening to about 20 seconds or so I too am a member of the No Wagon Wheel club. {#Stop}

As you could imagine, it's a popular song in Appalachia and particularly around Raleigh.  I don't think I'd heard it until I moved to NC.  I remember playing an open mic night years ago at a local bar and while people were signing in the guy running it was explaining about how many songs and how long people could play and then added: "Oh, and no fucking 'Wagon Wheel'".  First time I had heard that phrase.


I’ve sat around many a campfire with musicians hanging out. Inevitably, someone will kick into “Wagon Wheel.” Everybody knows how to sing it, or learns quickly, plus it is easy an easy song for harmonizing. I don’t recall hearing it on the radio though. Let’s see if RP will put it on the rotation

I mean the bona fides of that band are hard to beat. Gillian Welch and David Rawlings in that video. I don't believe I've ever called it up before so that was interesting. I know she's played with them tho.
