The second show featuring stories from the Greatest Generation. Alma Hahn prays for deliverance from a snake-handling church service, a man speaks to his future daughter in a letter written during WWII, and Luella Faith remembers her middle name as her ship is bombed by Germans.
Tales from the South is a 29-minute weekly radio show recorded in front of a live audience at Starving Artist Cafe' in the Argenta Arts District of North Little Rock, Arkansas. Each week, everyday Southerners read their own true story, unrehearsed and live. Local musicians play during dinner, and blues guitarist Mark Simpson plays on the show. Stories range from funny to sad, to enlightening to touching. Writers are all from the South. Although the show itself is unrehearsed, the literary memoirs have been worked on for weeks leading up to the recording. All stories are true and told by the Southerners who lived them.
