Compliance

Do as you’re told and watch ... if you can.


Thriller

Rod Lott
File Compliance under “stranger than fiction.” Although not a documentary, it is based on a true story, and one so utterly outrageous that many will refuse to believe it anyway.

The hot place to be

From desolate to in-demand, Midtown has risen from a ‘neglected backwater’ with help from a dedicated community.


News

Tim Farley
Eighteen years ago, Midtown was nothing more than a “neglected backwater” replete with halfway houses and abandoned buildings. Faced with blighted conditions years before the April 19, 1995, disaster, Midtown was instead a ghost town created by the 1980s’ devastating oil bust and ensuing disinvestment.

Music Made Me: Mike Hosty

The rollicking blues enthusiast shares the five albums that shaped his rugged musical outlook.


Music

Phil Bacharach
Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Will the Circle be Unbroken (1972) 

My dad bought this album and played it over and over on his new 1978 Nikko hi-fi stereo, which I still have. It was the guitar playing of Doc Watson and Merle Travis that really caught my ear. Amazing picking, playing and songs like “Tennessee Stud.”
