Tweener L – A Very Col. Christmas


In 2020, wTnS wasn’t able to bring the Annual Col. Bruce Hampton Tribute to you, our listeners. Given this, and the fact that many of you are still stuck at home almost a year into the COVID nightmare – wTnS decided to bring you a li’l Col. Bruce Hampton podcast gift for the 2020 Christmas/whatever holiday you celebrate season. We dug deep into the podcast vault, and unEarthed some previously unheard audio from interviews conducted in Atlanta’s Diamond Street Studios before one of TDawg’s legendary “Holiday Hootenanny” concerts. The amazing Larry Keel, Jason Carter (Del McCoury Band, Travelin’ McCourys), Nick DiSebastian (Bonaventure Quartet, Madrid Express, Town Mountain), Lindsay Pruett (Jon Stickley Trio, Asheville Tango Orchestra, Hot Point Trio), Joey Sommerville (Big Joe Burrell, Papa J Sez), Rev. Jeff Mosier (Aquarium Rescue Unit, Blueground Undergrass) and Bill Fleming (Hair Of The Dog, Expand Band) help the hosts celebrate The Col. a whole lot, and the Christmas Holiday Spirit a little bit as well. We are treated to four exclusive duet performances mixed with some stunning stories! Jeff and Rob even share one example of how even from the beyond, The Col. continues to mess with his friends. Bruce himself finds his way into this episode cosmically, verbally and musically (the latter thanks to his Live at The Vista Room record with the Madrid Express).
