In this episode my featured guest is the Dobro player, writer, & collector of prewar Dobros - Steve Toth. Steve has several instructional books published by Hal Leonard, and also has one of the most unique and prolific collections of prewar Dobros out there. We are going to talk all about his new book “DOBRO ROOTS”, listen to some tracks from some of his CDs, and I also wanted to take this opportunity to share Steve’s vast knowledge of the history of Prewar Dobros and some of the musicians that played them. His Book DOBRO ROOTS can be found on Amazon.com, and many other retail Book Stores.
