Dixie Diner

Back in the days when WZZQ was helping to make a star out of Dan Fogelberg, another relatively unknown band was earning a lot of local air-play. And deservedly so: The Highsteppers were a powerful blend of hard-driving Dixie-flavored bluesrock with a sound that rivaled Little Feat for pure intensity. And nobody does intensity like Larry Raspberry.

Larry says: “From our Movie Jive Assp, This was Filmed in Austin, Tx, Larry Raspberry,(Guitar,piano vocals)Carol Sue Ferrante,Raspberry (Vocals, Piano)Rocky Berretta,(Bass)Greg “Fingers” Taylor,(Piano Harp Vocals)Joe Mulherin (Trumpet Vocals),Jerry McKinney (Sax), Bill Marshall (Drums Vocals)”

Hot sweet potatoes and cracklin’ bread. Mulligan stew that’ll turn a rich man’s head…

C’mon down to the Dixie Diner y’all.

Once upon a time in Mississippi….

There was an FM radio station called ZZQ. It was so much more than a radio station, it was a touch stone for people who loved rock music.

In a time when most cars came equipped with AM radios, ZZQ led the market. They sold bucket loads of FM converters to baby boomers who wanted to stay connected with the times. There were no “play lists” to get in the way, just the music and the radio personalities.

Even now, it’s hard for me to listen to Dan Fogelberg, or Jackson Browne, and not think about the heyday of the music scene in Jackson, or that morning about 25 years ago when I turned on the radio and heard country music coming from 102.9. It was like I lost a good friend.
