Sir Robert Charles Griggs on BUITM!!!

Hey Peeps,

Charles Griggs who will be a guest on Thursday, February 18 on BU in the Morning!

Thank you Wikipedia for this lovely bio:

Sir Robert Charles Griggs

He began his career in the 1950's as a performer on the country music television show, "Town Hall Party." Later, his career took him to Nashville where he worked in recording studios as a sideman. In 1973, he recorded his first solo album, The Legend of Sir Robert Charles Griggs. The album, while not a big seller and now out of print, has achieved an underground cult status. Produced by Gary Paxton, it is an innovative showcase of experimental alt-country music, with all songs written by Griggs himself. Moog synthesizers and sound effects on some tracks set this album apart from the rest, as being ahead of its time.
In 1968, Joe Williams recorded Griggs' song Young Man on the Way Up on the album Something Old, New, and Blue for Solid State Records, and in 1973, Dick Curless recorded Country Soul on the album The Last Blues Song.
Griggs suffered from alcoholism and became disillusioned with the recording industry, dropping out of the scene altogether. He now lives in Hemet, California, working at a local school.
In 2008, his second album In to Jazz was released. It was self-released and produced by Griggs and bassist Jim DeJulio.

Hope you all enjoy it! Remember to catch BU in the Morning every weekday morning from 10am-12pm only on WTBU.
