MOONSHINE AND APPALACHIA
Well, kind hearts, indulge me a bit. Neal Hutcheson just sent me this YouTube clip because it is part of his documentary work for my film/play, "The Prince of Dark Corners." These are inverviews with folks who write about moonshining in Appalachia. I guess Neal may send me additional clips later. The point is, I am going to indulge in a bit of shameless self-promotion. All of this is part of an effort to take advantage of the fact that "Prince of Dark Corners" and "The Outlaw, Redmond"have been combined in a new DVD (over two hours in length) and there is some interest in national distribution to PBS stations as a result of an endorsement from NETA (National Educational Television Association) who will be recommending the new revised edition to PBS stations everywhere. Two of the guys in the interviews are authors and moonshine authorities: Jerry Alexander and Joe Dabney. The other fellow has dubious credentials but showed up when Neal was filming in Sylva and insisted on being allowed to talk.
