Local 518 Show

Can you feel it? That local music vibe, that sonic energy pulsing through the air? There's so much of it, Andy Gregory could only grab a bit for this Local 518 Show. Hear the songs by Hartley's Encore, Bright Dog Red, Mitch Elrod & MotherJudge, Buggy Jive, and Capital Zen.

Jocamo has always brought an old school brew of funk, R&B, soul, and rock to the masses. In 2001, they released 'You Know That It’s True'. The Attic Classic selection is "Clean It Up", the first track from that disc.

Steve Forbert

Singer-songwriter, Steve Forbert is one of our favorites. He has been one of my favorites since I first heard his "Tonight I Feel So Far Away From Home" from the "Alive on Arrival" album.  His songs document life.  He recently released a memoir of stories from his coming up through the music industry, starting with his departure from Meridian, Mississippi at the age of 21.
