Pure Imagination

August 31, 2016
Pure Imagination Compdendium

R.I.P. Gene Wilder (1933-2106)

This week on the Stephens’ Music Company Northwest Georgia Music Hour, Stu and I enjoyed kicking back and listening to as much local music as we could fit into an hour. We also took some time to reflect on the passing of Gene Wilder. About a month ago we were thrilled to be joined by Jason L. Smith, who performed “Pure Imagination” live on the air. It was magic, and we thought we should revisit that moment in honor of Mr. Wilder. Here’s what we heard.

Benjamin.K – The Last Ones
Tina & The Goose – Irma
Ellie Lawrence – Bare Knuckles
David Bell – King of Nothing
Michael Teague – Twisted Life
Jason L. Smith – Pure Imagination
Clay Broome – Umbrella Eyes
The Kamikaze Dali – The Creature
Shane West – One Big Heart

A visit with Codey Bearden + Clay and Steve!

July 22, 2016
Codey Bearden Compendium

Rear L-R: Codey Bearden, Mullins, Clay Broome, Steve Stuart. Front: Sonny (pic by Stu. Thanks!)

To no one’s dismay, we had another great time this week on the Stephens’ Music Company Northwest Georgia Music Hour. Ever since we first met Codey Bearden, he’s been going at it full speed. His band, Codey Bearden’s Tiny Kitchen, will release a new album in August, followed by a promotional tour. We enjoyed catching up with him and sampling some new material.

We also had Clay Broome and Steve Stuart stop by. In February, Billy Moehler (Booze Mountaineers) and his family lost their home to an electrical fire. In order to help out the Moehler family, Clay has organized an outstanding day of music for this Saturday in the Schroeder’s Courtyard. Moehler Fest begins at 2pm and ends at 11, and features Atomic Boogie, Jeff Rogers Band, Bennie Gray & The Trailer Park Cowboys, Drop Dead Nasty, Clay Broome Band, Scott Warren & Friends, The Network, Muletide Perkins Quartet, and Thunderbolt Patterson. This will be an unforgettable event in the courtyard and is only $5 to enter. That’s rad! Also, Sonny the cat managed to negotiate a deal that we’re still not quite sure about.

And, we got to listen to lots of great new music! Here’s what we heard.

Dooey – No Home
Shane West – One Big Heart
Pierce Pettis – My Life of Crime
Clay Broome – Umbrella Eyes (live)
Codey Bearden’s Tiny Kitchen – I Can’t Sleep
Codey Bearden – Run No More (live)
Codey Bearden’s Tiny Kitchen – Tonight
Codey Bearden’s Tiny Kitchen – What I Want
