    'Roots' resounds as epic storytelling

    When I first saw "Roots" before its debut on ABC in 1977, I thought it was compelling television.

    Crooked Road leads the way to country music's roots

    At 9 o'clock on a Thursday morning, the Dairy Queen is jammin' with live bluegrass music. It doesn't seem to matter that most of the musicians are grizzled older men; they are twanging up a storm. And this isn't a flukey one-and-done thing; music like this happens here every week. The next night,...
