Now this is an amazing story. Ralph Peer is kind of like the Forrest Gump of music history. He was there at the dawn of the blues and the founding of country, the man who started the rumba craze. He worked with Louis Armstrong and Hoagie Carmichael. Seriously, the dude was just a major player in the creation of modern music.
I highly recommend that you read Barry Mazor’s biography of Peer, but for now howzabout you read my little writeup on Diffuser?
