We had a blast visiting with members of Blacklight Crush on this week’s episode of the Stephens’ Music Company Northwest Georgia Music Hour. Stu and I have always been fans of the band, but it was an extra special treat to introduce some brand new recordings on the air and enjoy some rare live acoustic performance. We also paid tribute to the lovely Lisa Cammon who is no longer with us. She was a wonderful talent, friend, and patron of the arts. She will be missed. Here’s what we heard.

My Ninja – All I Wanna Do Is Blue
The Briars – Saturday
Marcus Watley – The Lisamarcus Song
J. Scott Thompson – Something ’bout the Rain
Blacklight Crush – Circle the Sun
Blacklight Crush – Others
Blacklight Crush – Ghost (live)
Blacklight Crush – Glass House
Blacklight Crush – Time Is a Thief (live)

Pure Imagination Compdendium

R.I.P. Gene Wilder (1933-2016)

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.

Tina & The Goose – Irma
Ellie Lawrence – Bare Knuckles
David Bell – King of Nothing
Michael Teague – Twisted Life
Jason L. Smith – Pure Imagination
