Bill Myers was born to be a musician. He knew it and his family knew it when they saw him banging on boxes and blowing into a broken horn. He became a pretty good musician, majored in music and started up several bands. But when he was a young man, another passion struck him: teaching.
Two years ago, Bill found himself near death. Since then, he's been recording the songs he wrote decades ago. The old songs of love and longing tickle him, and he talks with Dick Gordon about how satisfying it is to play them again.
