"What do you know? How have you lived...to know...what's beautiful?" - Pat Ast, HEAT (1972)
November 5, 2005: Special guest: Jim Krewson!
Mark is joined in the studio by artist and bluegrass musician Jim Krewson, who hangs, performs live on the spot, and plays some of his favorite records (including a rare track or two). Jim talks about his bands Jim and Jennie and the Pinetops and also The Blue Ribbon Boys... as well as art, movies, special kids, bluegrass audience habits, Arnold Schwarzenegger voices, sauerkraut enthusiasts, chickens raised in plastic bubbles, and what it's like to live alone in a cabin in the woods in the middle of nowhere.
