byNWR Presents… Cottonpickin' Chickenpickers: The Podcast
Bob Mehr, guest editor of bvNWR’s third volume (Hillbillies, Hustlers and Fallen Idols) hosts a podcast focusing on the 1967 country music comedy Cottonpickin’ Chickenpickers. A story of “moonshiners and madness” with “more stars than chicken feathers,” this thick slice of cinematic cornpone was filled with a fascinating collection of characters, both on the screen and in real life. Joining Mehr for the discussion are noted film critic Amy Nicholson and author/show business historian Kliph Nesteroff.
