Season Two - Episode 12 - James Jim McClendon "Grizzly"

8/15/2020
From the mountains of Alabama, to Sherwood Forest in Memphis, to the jungles of Vietnam and back again, Grizzly lived the life. A free and independent thinker, Jim was a man's man. He was funny, smart but most of all, intimidating. How? How do you know that is stronger, tougher, more unafraid, more unpredictable and to top it all off, smarter than you? Not many of those out there but Jim was one. Warning: This is not a happily ever after story. For more info, please visit...

Tonites episode is a story of segregation, integration, glory, success and somehow avoiding a terrible ass whupping. We go from 1st grade thru college.

Season Two - Episode 9 - Animal House In Memphis

8/15/2020
We told one of these stories in Season 1 and have plenty more. Tonites is probably the wildest one and scariest in some ways. I am hoping that the statute of limitations has expired for obvious reasons! We were young, too smart for our own good and oblivious to the outside world plus we were usually drunk. Yep, we had some damn good times! For more info, please visit www.broadneckmusic.com Music on this episode is https://audrabrown.bandcamp.com/album/the-cody-sessions Sponsor is...

Season Two - Episode 8 - Uncle Gary, The POT King

8/15/2020
We started this story in Season 1 and tonite, we finish. Gary was laid back, big time. But he turned his obsession into a huge business. From broke to being a millionaire by being good with plants. And then a lot of bad stuff happened. This episode contains a bit more realism that most so this is your warning: Not all live happily ever after.

How are southern funerals different from others?

I should have been smarter than this but let's face it, there just wasn't much information available where I lived...in the sticks. I did the best I could to figure out stuff and if you don't know anything else, remember, it is a southern thing!
