This Thursday Night Feature on WXYC welcomes guest host Simon Buck, a music historian based at Northumbria University in the U.K., where he researches experiences and depictions of old age and aging in southern musical culture. Hear and discuss music performed by very old southern artists and songs about old age, spanning the twentieth century and from the diverse set of musical styles associated with the South (including but not limited to folk, blues, country, gospel, and soul.)Selections come from the Southern Historical Collection and Southern Folklife Collection at UNC, as well as from Simon's collection.
