Have you ever given away a prized possession because you had a feeling it might really make a difference for the person receiving it? My guest Cameron Connah returns for the second in a two-parter to share the fascinating story of someone who did just that for him more than 20 years ago. It not only changed the trajectory of his life, but played a key role in the creative endeavors of three close friends. Get ready to be inspired by the lovely sounds of "the gift" in this beautiful tapestry of story and song.
Most of our episodes include stories about the legacy of Atlanta artist and musician Whit Connah - aka Honky Tonk Papa - and the impact he made on the lives of people who encountered him. But we'll often explore other legacy makers, like the people you'll hear about in today's show.
If you didn’t catch part 1 with Cameron, you'll want to go back and listen to Episode #2: Whit Songs. It’s filled with original music and some mind blowing surprises!
