Description for July 19, 2014

Storytelling: Amy’s story, “A Dipper of Spring Water” gives an account of how her family had the best cool, clear water when she was a child—water that flowed out of the mountain behind her home.  (Background music: “Let it Be”; and “Cool, Clear Water” by Gary Clawson)

Creative Corner:  Doreyl interviews Shirley Crisp from Stecoah; they discuss the history of the Crisp and Ammons families of Graham County, plus other history.  (Music: “Black-Eyed Susie” by the Valley River Boys from Stecoah)

Stories of Mountain Folk: Once more Amy talks with Rick Brogden from Cowee Mountain in Macon County. Rick’s grandfather, Tom Rickman, was the owner of the historic (1890s) Rickman General Store. Rick continues to recall memories of growing up as a child in the store.   (Music: “Chasin’ Grayson”  by the Country Store)

Black Roots of Appalachia:  Victoria s guest is Selma Sparks who originally came from New York, but now lives in Franklin. Selma talks about her life as a journalist where she once interviewed Malcolm X. (Music: “What She Knows Now” by Clover)
