Certain sounds can be very special to us. A song or voice may evoke very strong memories. For one East Tennessee man, sounds--whether the roar of an engine or the sweet refrain from an old-time instrument--can stir not only memories but the desire to create. Rob Wilds recently met this man of many sounds and talents, Johnny McGrew of Englewood.
