I wrote and recorded a song titled "NORMAN'S RIDE" about my grandfather, Norman Mottshaw and his Josslin 5200. You can find it at

Thank you! What a wonderful song!
I'm jazz and classical, but who doesn't enjoy some good ol' bluegrass?

You folks should click the link and have a listen. Well worth the time it takes :!:

I host a weekly Bluegrass radio show every Sunday from 4-6 pm EST at www.cfrc.ca and I use "Norman's Ride" as the theme song. Thanks for enjoying!
