Local legend Rusty York passes away

According to a touching article written by Cliff Radel for the Cincinnati Enquirer, Rusty York, who owned Jewel Studio in Mt. Healthy, passed away recently in Florida.  You'll find some great photographs on his page in the Rockabilly Hall of Fame

He came into WVXU's studio in 2007 and sat down with Stuart Holman to talk about his career.  After the interview, I drove Rusty up I-74 to meet his wife over in Indiana.  While he hadn't been very talkative in the studio with Stuart, he came alive when I asked him to talk about his guitar collection.  What wonderful stories he shared about them.  Here's the interview link below.
