Are you ready? Clearstory Radio Kicks off a road trip show with a mix of wild man Poet Alvin Knox talking about back seat car rides and the road trip home. Author Ramond Atkins shares the inside story of the glamorous life of a writer’s life on the road, and the musical interludes will have you with keys in hand and pointing that front bumper into the wild, wild West.
Join us for another great show celebrating the power of story in all its glory!
Alvin Knox was born in Northern Idaho, but did most of his growing up in the Puget Sound region, where having a 4-door Malibu with full bench seats helped establish his role as a driver. Although slipping in and out of Seattle on back streets was his specialty, there was nowhere along the I5 corridor that was spared his spontaneous visits. He arrived in TN a little over 20 years ago, in a VW bus. He might have kept driving if it hadn’t been confiscated by local law enforcement authorities.
