Epstein, a 67 year old who retired in , forged a reputation throughout the Lowcountry for his notable contributions to politics as an activist , education as a guidance counselor and teacher and athletics as a basketball coach.
In his upcoming memoir, They Call Me Pathfinder, which is slated to be published by Elite Authors later this year, he lays his story bare, openly recounting the low points of his history as willingly as he celebrates the highlights.
After divorcing his second wife, he hopped in a car on Christmas Day and headed south, leaving behind his hometown of Worcester, Massachusetts, and his two daughters, Karli and Brooke. He planned to take a long vacation, perhaps in Florida, to clear his head before returning home. He eventually got a part-time job as a substitute teacher and, later on, a masters degree from The Citadel.
Epstein never moved back to New England. He frequently ventured north to spend quality time with his daughters, but Charleston became his new home.
Over the next three decades, he taught, coached and counseled at numerous Charleston-area schools, including in North Charleston, West Ashley and James. Island, earning a reputation as a mover-andshaker within the community. He primarily worked with at-risk students, and in , he received a Martin Luther King Jr. Picture Award from his friend and colleague, S. Wendell Gilliard, with whom he lobbied at the Statehouse to raise the dropout age from 17 to There are views within the Statehouse that prevent progress.
His wife, Barbara, was trying for years to convince him to put his stories down on paper. But, the coronavirus pandemic-induced quarantine gave him a reason and the free time to give it a shot. But his editor was apparently riveted enough by his stories that she convinced him to publish it for a wider audience.

Barbara Burleson was unsuccessful in her search for affordable organic food to feed her granddaughter Lillie, so she did what most people do: She launched Lillie Fuel, a baby food company delivering meals to infants and toddlers in Charleston. After enlisting the help of her chef daughter-in-law Alex Presswood, formerly of 82 Queen, Burleson started making her own organic purees.
Burleson always made time for cooking during her year career as the regional manager for a retail company, but she quickly learned that making baby food was a completely different challenge. After completing the lengthy state health department certification, Burleson set up shop at a North Charleston commissary kitchen, officially launching Lillie Fuel in February.
For babies, there are over 50 pureed options that come in jars, including combinations like sweet potato and peach, beets and carrot or blueberries with coconut milk and oats. TOT Box to-go gourmet lunches include dishes like chicken bacon tortellini with asparagus, sloppy Joe pinwheels with roasted corn and meatloaf with roasted potatoes. The family-run company has seen enough growth to take the next step, Burleson said.
So we have five daycares now which equates to about meals per day. Burleson feels fortunate to help out local parents during this unprecedented time. The funds aimed to help pitmasters offset the cost of inventory, monthly rent and mortgage payments, employee salaries and more.

Call Earthlink today, If you've seen anything on here before, or your name is Jess Haglund, you know that this is one of my favorite bands of all time. I'm not sure how I managed not to put this single up yet. One of their best. I think I thought I put the song up from the half-cocked soundtrack the very first week, but in fact it was the alternate version of " Crazy Man ," which is also on Feels Like the Third Time.
B-side is their version of The Louvin Brothers' "Kentucky" recorded in Janet's living room which is where they're from. The person on the cover is Jenny Cattlett, a Freakwater friend. PS: There's a man playing on this I think, but you know I know, I know but I have such fond 12 year old memories of this song and I know you'll be a fan of the selection, Jess.
Jessica P. It's one of my very favorite memories. I was probably too young to understand this song back then, but now it resonates. And especially so at this point, what with the Dylan references. Here's a good interview with her that tells about it. I couldn't resist. An old favorite and a nice transition from yesterday's selection. I used to have this single but I seem to have misplaced it.
Here they are doing it live back when Jello was especially dashing and less preachy don't get me wrong, I've collected a fair amount of his spoken word over the years. For some reason I used to have his home phone number in college and I would call him every month or so to listen to his answering machine message; he changed it periodically and it was always pretty entertaining. I wonder if he still has the same number. Sorry Jello. Have anything on vinyl that fits this?
The only band name I remember from the cds are The Headcoatees. This week is for you! Figured starting with one of my favorite old picture discs would be appropriate. Mark Ibold from Pavement joined Free Kitten but not until later; all ladies for this one!
I'm not going to lie; I'm pretty thrilled about this. Again, lady week for Jess. There's a lovely little message carved into this record. B-side: "A real freak can not be made, a real freak must be born. Anyway, this is one of my old favorites.
I'll put something up from Pussy Whipped too this week. My big favorite was always " Feels Blind " though. Listener discretion advised today Hit Records was a super weird s record label in Nashville. They were basically budget cover versions, or sound-alike versions, of hit songs that people could buy for. Some of the guys covering the hits became pretty big soul or country singers years later, though many of them used pseudonyms, so we'll never know who some of them were.
I have no idea who Ricky Dickens is but here he is doing a lovely cover of one of my favorite songs Hit Records folded in the late 60s after being sued by some other record labels for licensing issues.
I thought this was especially fitting today as I'm going to see him play tonight! Very excited. The last time I saw him play was back in Highschool when this record came out.
I went with my amazing friend Lee, who just launched Altruette go check it out. Somehow, Lee and I both ended up in Brooklyn, living a few blocks from one another. Bob originally recorded this 30 years earlier November in the Minnesota Hotel in Minneapolis.
He wrote it but it's based on this song and this song. Dylan first came to NY in January of ' He recorded this on a trip back to MN. Picked this up at the WFMU record fair this year. Here's a great Mary Weiss interview. Love that zodiac logo!
Ruby has a great name and she's from Chicago. Here's another one of her hits. She's still around -- now Ruby Andrews-Lester. If you click here you can learn more about her and download Black Ruby from I listen to this every year; sorry if it's an obvious selection.
I just love Arlo. I also just read on his site that Arthur Penn who directed " Alice's Restaurant " two years after this song passed away and I never saw the news late sept. Read Arlo's story on there. I worked with Arthur Penn right after college. He was a cantankerous man, but was quite sweet from time to time. I was doing a website for the actor's studio and somehow was asked to read lines with the actors doing Arthur Penn's Studio production of "Who's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf.
I obviously jumped at the chance. Good bye Arthur, you will be missed. Oh also, this song's Alice is actually a woman named Alice Brock who now runs an art gallery in Provincetown. Read about her here. I ate too many mashed potatoes yesterday to be able to write anything today. I am in a food coma. Not even the 5-mile Turkey Trot that I ran in the morning was able to prevent it.
I realize this is a serious departure from most of what I play on here —even the heavier stuff— but I used to love Throbbing Gristle and I felt that I should pay tribute. Because it may be a bit too much of a departure, I've decided to pair today's TG with an old Lydia Lunch spoken word favorite, Oral Fixation.
She'd probably hate it. Oh well. Goodbye Sleazy These will likely take forever to play -- both are around 18 mins. Dear Diary Felt like a good one to put up for the th song. I'm surprised I've not done so already. The wonderful Alberta Hunter. Look at how adorable she is.
She was 83 when she made this. Most people associate this song with the amazing Bessie Smith and really, I prefer her version , but it was actually written by Jimmy Cox in As far as I know, there's no relation to Ida Cox though there are a few totally unfounded rumours on the interweb that Jimmy was her husband and she actually wrote it but he took the credit for it.
Maybe you know Eric Clapton's version. I like Clapton but man does his version make me cringe. Quite appropriate today after last night's Boardwalk Empire. I've always loved this song and recently I realized that maybe I love this other song " Take Care of All of My Children " because it reminds me so much of this one.
That song was in the brilliant and very depressing documentary Streetwise. Of course many of his songs sound similar, but there's something particularly parallel for me about these two. The trombone? The organ? The similar percussion? I don't know. Doesn't matter; both are beautiful. Here's another great one from this record.
Justine "Baby" Washington! She had a bunch of great singles mostly singles, in fact. B-side is "Suffering With The Blues. This was recorded the same year that he did Fever, and on the same label. Here's another good one Little Willie's sister is the amazing Mable John see July 5th entry, below. John actually died in my hometown of Seattle, inside the Washington State Penitentiary after stabbing and killing someone with a knife after a show.
Oh and he was called "Little Willie" because he was apparently very tiny. His height, that is Leiber and Stoller. No time to write today. Love LaVern. This too. There are far better songs on this record by Johnny and June, but you understand It's pretty cute when they do this. Jumping to My very favorite is " Shelter From The Storm " on here one of my favorites of all time , but it skips on my version. I'll replace it at some point, but for now here's my second favorite.
There's way too much to write about this record and not enough time or space. So that's that. I will hopefully start writing some long interesting things again soon. For now I'm pleased that I'm even getting anything up here on a daily basis. Busy busy times Speaking of, please go buy things here. I think just two more days of dylan. That's ok, it's how I feel this week anyway.
A little bored; will have to start the dylan thing up again later. Here's a total downer for today. I think I have three copies of this record.
Figured I may as well put one on. Obviously, this was a big hit and it's not at all hard to find. Great song; always makes me want to shake a tail feather.
Billy Preston performed it on Saturday Night Live; the first musical performance ever on the show Here's a good article for the day that has nothing to do with Billy except for the fact that he played keyboards for the Rolling Stones for a while it does, in fact, mention him briefly.
A good choice for day I think. This is an old favorite. I was very pleasantly surprised that Tyler and Maya's friend played this live at their wedding recently. It's actually also, among other things, an old Stray Cats song my very favorite band in 3rd grade , though I much prefer Janet and Catherine's version. Now I'm reminiscing about the Brian Setzer cutout from Bop magazine that I used to stare at for hours Here's Ricky Nelson's version.
I'm pretty sure the originator here was Dorsey Burnette Johnny's brother. May not be too many stories this week; swamped. This guy's story is pretty crazy, though, so you should read more about him here. I got to see him play a couple of years ago and it was pretty neat.. Oh and then there's " Mr. Soul ," which we get a little bit of in the beginning of "Broken Arrow.
Love this band. Also, they were named after a sign painted on a steamroller "The Buffalo-Springfield Roller Company". Go buy lots of records from him at Rockit Scientist because he and his store are awesome! Anyway, I couldn't resist; I've always wanted this single.
It's my very favorite Cure song ever. They were my favorite band from 7th grade through Highschool, so it's more of a nostalgic purchase than anything else, but that doesn't mean I'll enjoy it any less. Most of the stuff on here isn't as pretty. Here's another song I like that's more representative: Sons of The Sea. The last week back in July I ended with a Fairport Convention song of a poem Bob wrote, recorded in So here we are in I'm obviously not putting all of his records on here.
I don't have all of his records. I'm just putting my favorites from what I have, and a few favorites that other people have done. It's fun to read about Johnny Cash stopping by the studio during the Nashville Skyline recording sessions he was recording with his band next door , doing tons and tons of duets with Dylan, most of which were rejected.
Don't get me wrong, I love Johnny Cash Alternate Selection Ramones "Pet Sematary" but not the really good version which is why it's not on here in the non-alternate position Sire Click here to listen.
The Halloween list wouldn't be complete without Spike Jones. This whole record is hilarious and great, but this is by far my favorite. I'll have to ask my comic book friends about him. It will be fantastic! Me want. This is going out to Benji today. I highly recommend reading this page here. It's written by one of the Ran-Dells and tells all about how this song came about; pretty hilarious.
Also, it's interesting to hear about Steve's early interest in electronic music. He writes, "this was 10 years before Bob Moog invented the voltage-controlled synthesizer, and anyone who wanted to make unusual sounds used primitive sine wave generators and cut and spliced recording tape a great deal. Clearly it worked. Listening to it makes me miss my "Synthesis of Electronic Music" class in college; all tape splicing and sine wave generators.
B-side is " Saturday Night Holocaust. Love this band and this is one of my halloween favorites though the lyrics are pretty silly. That's all for today.
I mean come on I debated about this one but fuck it. I love it. It's not really a halloween song, but it certainly deals with morbid themes. It's a protest song just like yesterday's selection In other news, we played this on our very first WCNI show; the one to test to get us in Freshman year. If I remember correctly, this was not well received. For Katherine and David today who live in Tacoma, where the Sonics are from.
Makes me miss my beautiful hometown Seattle. No time to write today, but it was between this and " The Witch. Thanks to Norton for reissuing this in fact I got it at the record fair last weekend! Brilliant record; every song on here is amazing. Speaking of the Monster Mash If you're in NY go to this tomorrow night -- you won't want to miss it watch the teaser. Back in the day my tradition consisted of going to see the Misfits play in NY every Halloween.
One year I even went alone as I couldn't get anyone to come with me. If I remember correctly, I was decked out in a homemade 'Love it To Death"-era Alice Cooper costume surrounded by numerous 18 year old new-era misfits fans; pretty humiliating.
Halloween still just isn't complete for me without them. Here's my huge halloween show non vinyl to play at all of your halloween parties this weekend. Not the one you're thinking of Baron Daemon was a horror tv host in Syracuse, NY in the early 60s. You can see more of him here. It's Lurch from The Addams Family! He stood 6' 9" tall!
Originally Lurch wasn't supposed to speak at all, much less sing of course this song never appeared on The Addams Family. Ted came up with the line "you rang?
He seemed to be a pretty cool guy; some interesting stories about him here. My favorites: 1. In , he earned a Bachelor's degree from Syracuse University and moved to New York City to pursue a career in music as a guitarist and songwriter. Reed formed the Velvet Underground with John Cale, Sterling Morrison, and Moe Tucker in , and released four studio albums with the band, before embarking on a solo career in Throughout the s and s, Reed released fifteen studio albums, four live albums, and toured frequently in support of his records.

Between and , Reed released six studio albums, seven live albums, and two career-spanning anthologies. He continued to tour frequently, and also published two books of lyrics and three photography books. He is survived by his wife, Laurie Anderson.

These files also serve as a companion to the live performance recordings in Series I, providing information on the personnel and logistics involved in much of Reed's touring career. Series IV holds photographs of Reed and the Velvet Underground, and includes promotional shots, images of live performances, and a large collection of photographs taken by Reed.
Series VI comprises Art and Design files, and features album artwork, book layout files, in-store album displays, posters, handbills, and shirts. Reed's written works are all compiled in Series V, which holds book manuscripts, liner notes, lyrics, magazine and newspaper articles, notebooks, poetry, sheet music, short stories, and speeches.

This Series is arranged into eight Subseries, and further description can be found at the beginning of each section.

Many of the files were maintained electronically on the office's computers, and the file names created by Reed's staff were retained in this series. Of special interest are files for Lou's Views, which are glasses that Reed created in partnership with the Italian Company, Tramontano.

The receipts include everything from restaurant checks, room service bills, and itemized food and drink orders, to toll slips, airline tickets, and music equipment rental contracts.

There is a small selection of typed and occasionally annotated lyrics found in Series I from the Set the Twilight Reeling recording sessions. Also included in this Series are typed manuscripts from pieces Reed authored for newspapers and magazines, a small selection of original poetry, a few drafts of short stores, and two speeches.

The series includes album artwork; book layout and design files; calendars; in-store album display photographs; a Metal Machine Music installation design; postcards and handbills; posters; promotional items; and shirts.
The images were arranged and sent to Reed by the record company to showcase the manner in which store merchandisers displayed Reed's albums. These photographs also portray posters and merchandise related to the albums' promotion. Most pictures are captioned with a date, location, and store name, and are typically arranged by geographic region. These files not only serve as a means to illustrate the manner in which Reed's albums were promoted and displayed, but also serve as a document of many American record stores between and Postcards and Handbills are arranged chronologically, as are the Posters.
They feature small and large-scale prints to promote Reed's albums, appearances, concerts, exhibitions, and performances. These items include a selection of Velvet Underground shows from the s, Reed's solo career, the Velvet Underground reunion, and advertisements for items Reed endorsed. Of special interest are three banners from the Coney Island Mermaid Parade. The series also holds a few shirts promoting Reed's albums and tours.
Press clippings, photocopied articles, press kits, and a few full magazine issues make up the contents of Series VII. Most press items are arranged chronologically, however some were also organized by album or event by Reed's staff. While there are clippings from the s, most of the press materials date from the mid s onwards. Among the content are reviews of albums and performances, interviews, and profiles of Reed.
This includes artwork he collected or received as a gift; Reed's cameras; personal correspondence with friends and family; a Halloween costume; gifts; his glasses; items associated with his meditation practice; passports; shirts; Tai Chi materials; two yearbooks; and Reed's personal music and video collection.
The Artwork is arranged alphabetically by artist. Pieces by unknown artists are all arranged together. The bulk of the artwork appears to have been gifts by the artists. The Correspondence contains a mixture of personal letters and greeting cards. Reed saved many letters from his parents, as well as greeting cards from his Velvet Underground bandmate, Moe Tucker, who always addressed him as "honey bun. The Costume was a gift to Reed from Hall Wilner.
The videos feature Reed practicing Tai Chi, some of which he filmed to share with instructors, and others which depict him working with various individuals. The yearbooks include notes and signatures from Reed's classmates, as well as a picture of Reed's Track and Field team.
Reed's Music and Video Collection includes his commercially released solo albums, most of the Velvet Underground's releases, compilations he appeared on, and records by other artists in which he had writing credits or appeared as a guest artist. Reed retained a collection of bootlegs of his own live performances, including a series of cassettes assembled by the Velvet Underground Appreciation Society.
There is also a group of 45s that consist of an assortment of Doo Wop records and copies of Reed's earliest releases with the Jades and the Primitives. Among the videos present are Reed's commercially released video albums, the documentary, Lou Reed: Rock and Roll Heart , an assortment of commercially released films, and Doc Pomus' collection of boxing tapes, which Reed inherited after Pomus' death in Reed's personal music and video collection have been removed.
Video recordings and some audio recordings are unavailable pending digitization. Electronic records are currently unavailable.
The beginning of the tape contains a recording of a child named Eric Siedmann performing songs on May 25, The Studio recordings comprise over recordings of material intended for official album release.
Much of Reed's catalog is represented in various formats, ranging from rough mixes to final masters of albums, singles, and music videos. The studio recordings are arranged chronologically by album or project.
Tracklists transcribed from the original media are included when available. The earliest recordings are of the Velvet Underground, which include copies of acetates originating from Moe Tucker, and audio recordings from to sessions for The Velvet Underground and Loaded. These recordings include studio outtakes, rough and alternate mixes, and mono and stereo mixes.
Reed's studio output from the s and s is characterized by an assortment of mixes, test pressings, and reference copies. The recordings from the Magic Shop sessions for Set the Twilight Reeling are accompanied by a large cache of documentation.

Floyd Sexton is a little more philosophical about the effects COVID has had on society, taking it as an opportunity to bring a little joy to his neighbors. But, he also understands how to take things in stride. After 90 years on Earth, the past 68 of those walking hand-in-hand with his wife, Edna Sexton, he has a bit of a long-term perspective, particularly given his experiences — growing up during the Great Depression, fighting in the Korean War, raising three children, starting a successful textile business, watching the decline of that business through no fault of his own, and now living in an assisted living center.
He and his wife moved into Twelve Oaks assisted living center in Mount Airy in September, after she had been in another center in another community.
They moved to Twelve Oaks so he could be with his wife. Sexton said he fell in love with music when he was 4, not because of someone he heard, but because of something he saw — a ukulele.
He did a lot of trading, and one day he came in and had a ukulele and laid it on the bed, and I thought that was the prettiest thing I ever saw.
The instrument had a booklet with it, and his brother used that to show Sexton the chords on the ukulele. We used to play homecomings at churches, we could go to places like that. They would also set up just about anywhere there were people gathering, in public, to play. One time, he said, they were playing at a graveyard. The wonder of music and the joy of having a little money was awesome for such a youngster in that time, but Sexton said all good things must eventually end, though that can often be because of better things coming.
His brother married, which soon ended their street-playing days, but Sexton and another brother, Lloyd, began playing the guitar and mandolin, again earning money for their music. That was after the minimum wage was 40 cents an hour. Things were getting better then. Years later, at age 18, Sexton joined the army. That was in In , while home on furlough, he met a young lady who he took a shine to, and her to him.
While the two of them only dated a few times during his furlough, they continued writing during his time away.
That correspondence was a saving grace for Sexton, a way to stay in touch with his roots and his hopes at home while in the midst of some fierce fighting. He was part of a unit that lost nine men one night after they were ambushed.
But they kept writing, sharing what was going on in their lives, their dreams. When we got up there, we went out to the car, I had a brand new Chevy I had bought, we talked a little while, I knew before I went up there I wanted to marry her. They married little more than a month later, on Christmas Eve, , settling in Mount Airy four years later.
Both of them eventually ended up working in local textile mills, and after a while Sexton figured he could do more than work for someone else.Stay With Me - LORRAINE ELLISON (Warner Brothers , September ) Disc 3, SCREAM 1, 22 tracks (Card No's 50 to 71), minutes: 1.
