Beyond the Sticky Stuff-- Part 2: Bluegrass and Murrow


Sometimes the pines inspire the pitch. too.  Earl Scruggs sang "In the Pines,"  a haunting Southern Appalachian folk song, which he picked up from Bill Monroe when they played together as the groundbreaking group The Bluegrass Boys.


Edward R. Murrow knew all about pitches and pine.  The North Carolina boy pitched his way to stardom as a television journalist.

And, his namesake park --  Edward R. Murrow Park in Washington, D.C. -- is home to Scotch and white pines.  But somehow, he was never inducted into the Order of the Long Leaf Pine.

Order of the Long Leaf Pine?
