Our dear friend Peg turned us on to this guy C.W. Stoneking, a real eccentric with an accent somewhere between Australia and New Orleans, a banjo, a Dixieland band, and a pretty good hat.

We here in Iowa City have our own premiere throwback with a decent hat, William Elliot Whitmore, who looks like a scrawny Iowa redneck and sings like fat Delta bluesman.

While we’re at it, here’s a song I’m into, “Richmond” performed by The Faces, with that sweet voice of Ronnie Lane.

Where’s Ronnie’s hat?
