Today's program is a Classic Clearstory featuring one of our top five favorite books from 2013 and favorite music from TJ Stafford. Enjoy!
Get Ready. This weeks Clearstory Program features our 2 Part interview with author, Michael Farris Smith for his new novel, Rivers. It's an amazing work that eerily pulls from the traditions of William Faulkner, Larry Brown, William Gay . . . need we continue? And to find music that would reflect portions of the story, parts of the internal landscape of a man's world when it is cast into a place he never imagined possible and his soul is pushed to limits he never expected - we pulled up the music of Mr. TJ Stafford.
Enjoy today's ride into the power of story!
Our Apologies - It appears the Clearstory muse was determined to play Wiley Cash's interview one more time. Stay Tuned for Cathy Beck on Sunday at 12:00 High Noon.
One of the great things about being on the road, well - besides being on the road - is that it forces me due to production times and travels is to review some of my favorite shows on Clearstory Radio and choose a few gems from the past.
Today's show is a shining gem. A really, fun interview (casual radio visit) with Cathy Beck to talk girlfriends, writing, creativity, and Route 66 Road Trips.
We hope you enjoy today's show as much as we did back in the days of 2012 when we first recorded. It includes a short visit with the owners of one of America's favorite indie book store - Sundog Books in Seaside, Florida and then our chat with Cathy.
And, of course, featuring great musical interludes from all manner of artists.
