American Aquarium

In the first episode of this series, you got to hear about how BJ Barham turns uncomfortable conversations about the dark parts of Southern history into songs, about racial and class divides, how influential Tom Petty and Bruce Springsteen are to his music, and about how things stand for American Aquarium and in the music business more generally during the coronavirus pandemic.

From WNCW Program Director Joe Kendrick: This is the first of a two episode series on BJ Barham, front man of NC band American Aquarium, with in depth conversations with BJ as well as guests Ronda Chollock, a music promoter from Charlottesville, Virginia, and music artist Tyler Boone, who grew up in Charleston, South Carolina, but now calls Hollywood, CA home. We get into topics like how Barham articulates the dark history of the South so that people will start having conversations about racial and class divides, however uncomfortable those conversations might be.

WNCW DJs, staff and volunteers will be at the Fall For Greenville Festival begining today, Friday - October 12th. Renee Denton and Spencer Jones will emcee on the various different stages through the weekend. Our staff and volunteers will be at the WNCW Tent Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Come out and say hello to us! Enjoy the beautiful weather, listen to great music and eat super good food! Come to Downtown Greenville, South Carolina and see for yourself why Travel and Leisure Magazine named it one of the best festivals in the southeast.
