Legendary birthday: The first thing I heard this morning when my alarm radio turned on was that Vassar Clements turns 75 today. I rarely know who the NPR Morning Edition’s obscure person’s birthday of the day is, so I found it somewhat amazing that I had seen Vassar in the Nashville airport earlier this week and went out of my way to play goofy fan. However, despite my goofiness, I didn’t come close to Ann, who called him Mr. Spicher. I’ll admit that before I had some fiddlers in my house, I would not have been able to confuse these two legends, but would have been like everyone watching us in the airport wondering who we were groveling over.
