NPR Says Bagpipes OK in Vancouver
 
After banning busking bagpipers (say THAT 3 times quickly...) the city of Vancouver has reversed its stand. Here's a transcript from Friday's "All Things Considered" on NPR:

It's the first time I've heard any American news program refer to busking, by the way...

David -- Several years ago NPR sent a reporter from Austin to shadow me for an entire day at my pitch on Jackson Square in New Orleans. He edited all of that tape down to a five-minute piece that absolutely captured the essence of my show. That interview is still archived on the NPR website.

I forget the man's name, but he did a segment on performance art which we were doing in west Oakland. He captured my button accordion music and did a very good piece with it. The guy travels the country doing these various bits. I'm not sure if it's the same reporter you had, though.
