HELPING PEOPLE TELL THEIR STORIES
The Paul Leslie Hour
Hello! Thank you for coming by. This is the "digital" home to my growing library of interviews. You can listen in anytime and be fascinated by the fascinating.
Keep up to date with our friends at The Pickup!
Our special guest Anna Wilson exists at the intersections of country, jazz and rock. She's a singer, songwriter, recording artist and performer who has been called the “queen of the country jazz duet.” Her critically acclaimed country duets album Countrypolitan saw her joined with greats of jazz and country including Kenny Rogers, Keith Urban, Connie Smith, Ray Price, and Larry Carlton. Always one to evolve Anna Wilson recently formed the band Troubadour 77, which carries the torch of 70s California rock with original songs written in the style of classic groups like the Eagles and other artists who played at the famed Troubadour club in Hollywood. It’s an interesting look at an artist who is at home in so many genres.
Charleston, South Carolina is a city with a rich history, culture and is certainly scenic. Southern Living magazine called it the “most polite and hospitable city in America” and Travel + Leisure called it the “World’s Best City.” We’ll let you draw your own conclusion, but our special guest John Tecklenburg may be in agreement. He’s the Mayor of Charleston, South Carolina, but one of his favorite places is sitting behind the piano. You could say that music is in Mayor Tecklenburg’s blood, his grandmother Miss Pauline Livingston Tecklenburg played the piano and his great uncle, Fud Livingston was a prolific musician and songwriter, who wrote “I’m Through with Love,” which was recorded by everyone from Nat King Cole, Ella Fitzgerald, Bing Crosby and continues to be recorded by artists today. John Tecklenburg is the jazz playing mayor and we’ll be listening to some of his music and welcoming him for some light-hearted conversation.
