the macon sound

Today we filled up on music and stories of community before Thanksgiving. We spoke with Sharon Collins, whose documentary named "The Macon Sound" premieres Nov. 20 on GPB. The documentary explores musicians like Otis Redding and Little Richard who helped make the town a destination for artists all over the country.

We also figured out how to navigate tense family holiday situations with some wisdom from author Anita Sanchez, plus heard some Thanksgiving stories from Kay Powell and Dame Wilburn.


GPB

You know James Brown, Otis Redding and The Allman Brothers Band. They all carried big sounds all over the world and started in the fairly small city of Macon. A new documentary highlights some of Macon's most influential musicians and performers. It's called "The Macon Sound."

The film's executive producer and narrator, Sharon Collins, gave "On Second Thought" a preview.  "The Macon Sound" premieres Tuesday at 8 p.m. on GPB TV .
