Tonight on City of Giants we have Carla Britton Gregory, a friend who has is getting a following around town for her music.… plays guitar and sings about her life, but I know her from her cooking at the The Farm Shopping Center Saturday Farmers Market. There is nothing like a relationship built on eating sample foods in a parking lot (last weekend was Mutton meatballs).
Carla sings originals so I tried to make her sad and write Blues. She did some songs in the studio, including one title “The Show” that she wrote after a singing a show at the Colony. We talked about motivation and how creativity comes to her. She is filled with energy and lights up a room.
I was a little trouble. I said that if Woody Guthrie’s guitar kills fascists, how would she use hers as a weapon. I did persist on what instrument I could play in her band (cowbell), and asked if she could write a tune with the words “Blurry Missouri.” I did ask if she wrote propaganda songs for the government.
It was fun. Listen tonight at 7 pm or this weekend each day at noon at www.radioIDL.com.Read more
