Radio broadcast showcasws tall tales of North Georgia

POSTED: July 12, 2012 1:30 a.m.

 If you’re looking to learn more about the "old maids of Murrayville" or the first automobile in Banks County, you may or may not get the answers you seek during Saturday’s "Celebrations: ARTS ALIVE" radio broadcast.

From 8-9 a.m. Saturday on Brenau University’s 89.1 FM, local author Gordon Sawyer will be sharing tall tales from his latest work, "Characters, Crazies and the Culture of Northeast Georgia."

Although certain details may be improvised or embellished a bit, the humorous yarns he’ll be spinning are based on actual people and events from this area.

The hour-long broadcast will actually be a double-header. In addition to Sawyer’s tales, listeners will also have the opportunity to enjoy "old timey music" performed by veteran and youth performers from the Georgia Pick and Bow Traditional Music School.

If you miss the live broadcast, you will be able to enjoy the recorded show as a podcast on the "Celebrations" website, celebrations.podomatic.com.

"Celebrations" is weekly program organized by a variety of volunteer writers, performers and artists. The group’s goal is to bring the arts to all ages.
