Martin Bandyke Under Covers for October 2020: Martin interviews Grace Elizabeth Hale, author of Cool Town: How Athens, Georgia, Launched Alternative Music and Changed American Culture.

Martin Bandyke Under Covers | Ann Arbor District Library

From the publisher:In the summer of 1978, the B-52's conquered the New York underground. A year later, the band's self-titled debut album burst onto the Billboard charts, capturing the imagination of fans and music critics worldwide. The fact that the group had formed in the sleepy southern college town of Athens, Georgia, only increased the fascination. Soon, more Athens bands followed the B-52's into the vanguard of the new American music that would come to be known as "alternative," including R.E.M., who catapulted over the course of the 1980s to the top of the musical mainstream. As acts like the B-52's, R.E.M., and Pylon drew the eyes of New York tastemakers southward, they discovered in Athens an unexpected mecca of music, experimental art, DIY spirit, and progressive politics--a creative underground as vibrant as any to be found in the country's major cities.In Athens in the eighties, if you were young and willing to live without much money, anything seemed possible. Cool Town reveals the passion, vitality, and enduring significance of a bohemian scene that became a model for others to follow. Grace Elizabeth Hale experienced the Athens scene as a student, small-business owner, and band member. Blending personal recollection with a historian's eye, she reconstructs the networks of bands, artists, and friends that drew on the things at hand to make a new art of the possible, transforming American culture along the way. In a story full of music and brimming with hope, Hale shows how an unlikely cast of characters in an unlikely place made a surprising and beautiful new world.Martin's interview with Grace Elizabeth Hale was originally recorded on July 7, 2020.

#342 - The Teachers Who Inspired Us (feat. Christophe Caballero, Ashley Elizabeth Hale, Stephen Hanna, Robin Masella)

The Ensemblist

One of the most important reasons anyone pursues a career in theatre is because they had a teacher that inspired them. Through tough love, intense compassion, or a combination of the two, that one person can be the spark for an artist to believe in themselves, their voice and their abilities. This month, we’re collaborating with a new online training site called PassDoor. Founded by Broadway ensemblists, they’re connected seasoned performers with every socio-economic and geographic corner of the world, so that any striving artist can access the training and mentorship they need. We asked PassDoor instructors to share the stories of their favorite teachers - the ones that inspired them to hone their craft and eventually make it to Broadway. Learn more about your ad choices.

Some of them are household names like R.E.M. and The B-52’s, but perhaps more interesting is the great music you might not know: the jittery dance-punk of Pylon, or the anguished, poetic songwriting of Vic Chesnutt.Hale also explores how these bands negotiated questions of race, class, sexuality, and authenticity.
