Message from Jeff Konkel @ Broke And Hungry Records: "Anyone who's spent much time in Clarksdale, Mississippi, will be very familiar with Foster Wiley, better known as "Mr. Tater, the Music Maker." Tater is the last of the Delta street musicians. In recent months he's had some serious health concerns. Yesterday (9.01.10) he was airlifted to Methodist University Hospital in Memphis. Please keep him in your thoughts and be sure to check out his Facebook page for up-to-date information." 
Per his FB page as of 09.02.10:  
Mr Tater is at Methodist Hospital in Memphis, in the ICU at Tower 422. The info I got is that "His Condition is guarded, his vitals are stable, and he is resting"
YOU can help Mr. Tater by purchasing his CD The Best Of Mr. Tater  via Cathead Delta Blues And Folk Art. Contact Roger Stolle : Roger at cathead dot biz

Thanks for keeping us informed Jeff and please let Tater know that he has friends that he never knew. We all pray and wish for him to get better and back on the streets and stage to entertain. I purchased one of his t shirts and wear it proudly for him and C'dale. He always has a smile and a hello... thanks again Jeff........billyt
