From Moonshine to ArmadillosAuthor: Joe Bevilacqua Narrator: Joe Bevilacqua, Willie Nelson, others, Kenneth Threadgill Audiobook
Veteran award-winning producer Joe Bevilacqua hosts this hour-long program outlining the history of Threadgill's and Armadillo World Headquarters, their contribution to the birth of the Austin music scene, and their influence on the Nashville sound and country rock.
"This program offers a soup to nuts history of Austin's growth into the live music Mecca that it's become today. The show is more than just contemporary talking heads and music-it features an amazing collection of archival interviews and recordings (including tape of some never-before-heard early Janis Joplin performances, which should qualify as an authentic archival treasure). The production is well put-together, flowing smoothly between many different elements."-Eric Nuzum, NPR's vice president of programming
