This week (12.3), Craig sits down with Texas songwriting great Radney Foster to talk about his new, innovative book/album concept combination called For You To See The Stars." Also, a short visit with Joe Kendrick, veteran of the great WNCW radio in western NC and host of the new podcast Southern Songs and Stories.
A message from your host, Craig Havighurst:
Blessed are the storytellers, and this week we’ll visit with two of them from the world of roots music. Thirty years into his recording career, Radney Foster is a certified star of Texas songwriting and authentic country music. Always intellectually restless, Foster has widened his scope in recent years by songwriting with military veterans and writing fiction. Recently he released an album and a book of complementary short stories under the title For You To See The Stars.
Joe Kendrick’s medium is radio and his new audio series Southern Songs and Stories is documenting musical culture with a podcast out of his home base at legendary Americana station WNCW in Spindale, NC. I sit down with Radney Foster and Joe Kendrick in the hour ahead.
The String airs at 8:00am on Sunday and again at 8:00pm on Monday!
