Michael Wallis & David Gessner

Sunday, March 11, 2012 - 9:00pm

Even if he didn’t “kill him a b’ar when he was only three”, as the Disney song extolled, David Crockett was probably our first celebrity hero. A true “Son of Tennessee”, which was the frontier of America in the very early 1800s, Crockett was a very successful bear hunter; the archetypical frontiersman, and a gifted raconteur. The wilderness was indeed his cathedral. Tune in to Inquiry tonight when we talk with writer MICHAEL WALLIS about his thrilling history of the idiosyncratic DAVID CROCKETT: THE LION OF THE WEST.

Songwriters In the Round: Tiff Jimber – Jen Vanderlyn – Luis Narino

Tiff Jimber: My music is piano pop

Sounds like Sara Bareiilles and Ben Folds
Tastes like coffee spilled on ivory
Looks like a Purple piano in 4 inch heels
Smells like fresh baked cookies
Feels like a bathtub of aloe vera gel
Makes Ewoks dance and flowers sway to the groove.
