This is my five seconds of fame (or something) on a small radio station in Roanoke Rapids, NC ,with my old band Yesterday's Pickles. The band is now defunct, but we had fun while it lasted.

Flower for a Yankee Soldier is a true song that I wrote about my grandmother who cared for the grave of an unknown Civil War soldier. The grave is located on the old family homeplace near Edneyville, NC. My grandma (born in 1886) looked after the grave ever since she was a little girl, even though people told her that they wouldn't do it because he was an enemy soldier. She said that he was somebody's son first.
