Some recent radio segments - I'm doing double duty for two projects here: promoting and publicizing both Fort Payne Boom Days festival as well as helping along the continuing momentum behind efforts to increase public awareness and Alabama music tourism related to "Muscle Shoals" the movie and the rich recording history associated with this special place.
April 5th & April 7th, 2015 - "The Audiovore" hosted by Lee Shook. In-depth interview with Swamper Jimmy Johnson about the Muscle Shoals sound.
