I also heard this NPR story.  My attention is always gotten when I hear that 
someone is blind.  The story was interesting, even though I had never heard 
of this guy.  The attitude of the writer wasn't good.  That person thought 
the story was newsworthy because he was blind.  I thought it was noteworthy 
and would have been, even if his blindness was never mentioned.  He played 
the guitar and banjo and is known as the best in his particular kind of 
playing.  Read it, if you can.
