RIP Vic Chesnutt

2 years ago Vic Chesnutt left us by his own devices. He left behind a legion of fans and songs that convey his unique view of the world. Vic was a prolific songwriter and influenced many artists in the Athens, GA scene and beyond. I was introduced to his music through Widespread Panic, who collaborated with Vic through the project "Brute".

It is always my great honor to bring in co-host Bob Parlocha. Bob has turned me on to so much great jazz throughout the years. Unfortunately, last Sunday Bob was not into Vic on my level.

I archived the show on Mediafire so it can be enjoyed as long as they allow it. Take a listen. I also posted a link to the interview that Vic did with "Fresh Air" and Terri Gross. It aired just 24 days before he died.
