The Bicycling Guitarist in the news
On I am interviewed by the Smith & Wesson morning show on KRSB-FM Best Country 103 radio station. Later that day I am filmed by one of their crew across the street from the radio station, and they put the video up on their YouTube channel. I had some technical difficulties because of bad things done recently to my guitar by someone I trusted.
On local CBS TV Station KPIC aired a short segment about me twice (on the 5:00 p.m. and again on the 6:00 p.m. broadcasts). It did not show me on the bicycle. I was filmed by the same reporter the next day (January 19) riding indoors at a middle school gym, but that footage has not aired yet. Besides the reporter, another person was there filming me and there is a video from that day on my YouTube channel.
On January 14, 2013 The News-Review of Roseburg, Oregon prints a nice story about me at http://www.nrtoday.com/news/4229880-113/watson-guitar-roseburg-bicycling (link no longer worked when I checked this in January 2017). I was featured even more prominently in the same newspaper in 2007 (see below).

“A bicycling troubadour” was the main story on the front page of The News-Review, Roseburg, Oregon on October 15, 2007. That story is no longer available on the newspaper's website (or maybe it is with a subscription), but I found it here.
