An in-depth conversation with Nashville-based music critic, freelance writer, and broadcaster Barry Mazor about his two books "Meeting Jimmie Rodgers" (Oxford University Press, 2009) and "Ralph Peer and the Making of Popular Roots Music" (Chicago Review Press, 2014).
Nashville-based author Barry Mazor is one of the best and most respected writers on American roots music and also hosts an excellent roots music radio show on Acme Radio. I had the immense pleasure of chatting with Barry for an hour about his indispensable books on Jimmie Rodgers and Ralph Peer.
