On May 26, 1940 a legend was born. On April 19, 2012 we lost a legend.  But the years in between were amazing.  Those are the years that Levon Helm was in this world.

I've been a fan of The Band for a long time.  And I've always loved Levon.  Great drummer, singer, mandolin player...you get the picture.  A musician's musician.

And then I got to meet him.  A few times, as a matter of fact.  He was so humble, so nice.  I couldn't believe we we're lucky enough to have him at the radio station.  Yet, he acted as if he was lucky to be there.

Remembering a great man on what would have been his 75th birthday, and celebrating his life and the difference he made in ours.
