Radio Interview and CD Review

Red Band Bar and Grill with Uncle Gram
Interview from Oct 13 2007....was a 30 minute interview broken into 3 parts.
It might take a few minutes for these to load....but eventually you will see the little blue arrows to play....
Part 1

Part 2

Part 3

Shortlight CD Review.....Thanks Jason

There seems to be a unique artist budding amongst the country music backdrop of Nashville. 'Sweet Cynthia and the Nashville Music Co.', the second CD from this artist, is a blend of music styles, slide guitar and soothing raspy vocals.
Digging a little deeper in the lyrics will prove to be a fruitful endeavor for the poetic minded.
...very promising, one not to be missed, and we look forward to hearing more.

Hope this isn't it?

Well I hope this isn't too superficial, but I am having a blast driving this I thought I would post it.
I've had it about 3 months and for some reason seem to like it more the more I drive it.
Cars always seem to be good goals for people, benchmarks for success I guess....which in all honesty is good, as long as it doesn't lead to superficial-ality.
For me I think there is a wee bit of redneck in me that might shine through with my attraction to the shiny cars..the hotrods if you will. My Grandmothers brothers son is legendary drag racer Ronnie Sox, who won five National Hot Rod Association championships. He resently died of cancer....he was a great guy!!
Here he is tearing up the track in the glory days....and I remember seeing this car when I was a little kid. alittle family history to justify my indulgence.....thus it's not superficial.......must be somewhere embedded in the genes........oh yeah!!!!

Footnote from my Dad about this one
"In 1972 in his '72 Hemi Cuda he won all but one of the national events that year. I think there were about 12.
The one he lost he missed a shift for the ONLY time in his entire career. He also had many "0-0-0" reaction times on the lights at the start...unheard of even, the comparable
class to what Ronnie was in back in the day don't have four speeds but rather have push button shifts...Ronnie told me just before he died that the driver had been taken out of the race
due to this."

Radio Play on Fox 102

Weird Beard, legendary DJ and staple in the Radio Rock Community of Columbia....and by the way a great guy....has been playing 'When the Levee Breaks' and 'Lady in the Moonshine'. So I must extend a huge thank you to the man, for this and for getting folks out to see the shows and for coming to the shows yourself....Cheers Weird Beard for the play and for not being one of the 'plastic personalities' out there.

Bogart's In Columbia, Sat Oct 13th

Definitely a Magic Night...I had such a good time once again. This was in doors ( not as cold on the old guitars ) So we got to play in tune.....was a little bit of a hassel at Utopia....just because it was getting colder and the 43 gibson and 87 martin are alittle cranky when the weather changes.

Great little outdoor room......the night was cool and southern.
