Interview with Vermont Public Radio

Vermont Public Radio just posted this lovely interview with Mr. Merritt. In it, they ask for further clarifying details about "The Blizzard of '78." Though short, I liked the general conceit of having Mr. Merritt discuss one song for 10 minutes straight. He discusses the musical origins, explaining how he got the buzzy hum on the dulcimer in the song, and expounds on his time spent in Vermont. Most excitingly, though, he claims that his next project will be to finish up some musicals he's started. Here's to hoping we'll finally get to see Song From Venus after all these years!
