Athens Redux 07/22 thru 12/22
Shared on July 8, 2022
This group wasn't really a band, they were an ad hoc ensemble that was called into service when a rare snowfall descended on Athens the night of January 7, 1988. The band we had scheduled called us from North Carolina to let us know they were stuck and couldn't make it to Athens. Kev'n Kinney was staying with Peter and Barrie, so a phone call led to the performance I call "Drivin' Snow". We hope you'll enjoy!

When I worked with the Blanks we played clubs in Charleston frequently, including the Windjammer on Isle of Palms. As a quid pro quo the 40 Watt Uptown hosted a Charleston band, the Jumper Cables, a time or two. This clip is from April 3, 1986.

Today has been saccharine to say the least. I debated whether or not to post an episode this week, but I’m certain my sister would want us to carry on in her absence. Taj Mahal is one of the few shows that I worked that was a style she enjoyed, so that’s our feature for this week. This one’s for you Sis.

Normaltown is one of the more picturesque neighborhoods in Athens, when we lived there during most of the 1980’s it was, for the most part, an easy place to do what you came to Athens to do. It’s not necessarily the same anymore, and that’s a sad thing but as Thomas Wolfe said, You Can't Go Home Again. This clip might be the closest we get, come to think of it!
