Two Way Street: Obituary Editor Kay Powell And Musician Adron On Beginnings And Endings

On this edition of "Two Way Street," Georgia musician Adron stops by to talk and play a few songs from her new album "Water Music" before setting sail for the west coast. We also hear from a woman who made a career of saying goodbye: Kay Powell. 


Obituaries editor for The Atlanta Journal-Constitution from 1996-2009, Powell has been called the "doyenne of the death beat." She has created memorable public legacies for moonshiners, a CEO turned K-Mart greeter, a model aircraft designer, the planet Pluto and Flannery O'Connor's peacock, among many others. 

After three albums, an EP and spending most of her life in Georgia, Adron is taking her guitar and signature whistle to Los Angeles. The singer-songwriter-instrumentalist talked with us about how 1970s soul music influenced her newest album, "Water Music" and her favorite musical memories of Atlanta. Adron also performed three songs, including a bonus track by the same name, in the GPB studio.
