Interviewing Tony McCormick is a little like listening to Car Talk on public broadcasting. Like Click and Clack, he punctuates every sentence with a laugh—one of those contagious chuckles so that you can’t help but laugh, too.

The OBA webmaster’s laugh isn’t the only thing that’s constant—he’s a nonstop power source, focusing intense energy on anything he’s interested in.

For example, about 10 years ago he picked up the banjo (actually, he re-picked it up, after a passing attempt when he was 19 years old).

“I’m a both-feet-in kind of guy,” Tony said, and he applied that enthusiasm to the banjo.
