Abstract: Go back to 1936 with Shervena Grubbs, her twin sister, and their daddy on a train to Little Rock in "Couldn't Sleep a Wink." Let's get in a car with Wetzel LaGrone in the 1940's, as he hitches a ride to a bigger world in "The Road to Carthage." Jay Fredrich takes us back to the 1940's with a picnic, a boat, and an untimely goodbye that culminates 50 years later with a surprising "Hello" in "Do You Remember Me?" Tales from the South is a 29-minute weekly radio show recorded in front of a live audience at Starving Artist Cafe' in the Argenta Arts District of North Little Rock, Arkansas. Each week, everyday Southerners read their own true story, unrehearsed and live. Local musicians play during dinner, and blues guitarist Mark Simpson plays on the show. Stories range from funny to sad, to enlightening to touching. Writers are all from the South. Although the show itself is unrehearsed, the literary memoirs have been worked on for weeks leading up to the recording. All stories are true and told by the Southerners who lived them
