Buddy Red Bow / Oglala Lakota from Pine Ridge, South Dakota
An Oyate Favorite!!
Buddy Red Bow was one of the first and greatest of native contemporary musicians. He was a personal friend of Milt's--in fact, Milt was the first person to record Buddy and put "Indian Love Song" on a little 45" record.
This special Oyate "deal" is an hour-long documentary produced on Buddy's life and music produced for KILI FM Radio on the one-hour anniversary of Buddy's death.
I remember writing this program and worrying all along that the script was too thin, that it wasn't working. Milt kept saying to me "Just wait--there is the music--a lot of music." Finally, I handed him the script, he produced the show, did the final mix, and handed me back a cassette copy and said, "Now listen". He left the house and I popped the tape in and listened. An hour later, when the program ended, Milt came back in and I was sitting on the couch crying like a baby. "It's so beautiful," I sobbed.
