Episode Info:

In our October episode of Blues Dance World, Katie gives us a glimpse into the life of Big Maybelle and her famous song ‘Candy’. Then, Katie, Clyde, Aaron, and Andy, along with special (repeat!) guest and sociologist extraordinaire Tim O’Neill, have a freewheeling discussion about the value of touch in our society and the ways that touch impacts dancing. We also give a well-deserved shout out that we missed in last month’s episode (get it Sommerville!), hear about the joys of partying with Icelanders, and learn about Clyde’s out of this world retirement plans. If you want to read Tim’s Thesis Paper from 2005, “Hugs for Sale: The Commercialization of Human Touch”, which is mentioned in this episode, check it out here: Blues Dance World Podcast focuses on topics of blues dance culture. These podcasts will be posted once a month, so keep an eye out for them. If you like what you’re hearing, please let us and the world know! Rate and review us on our iTunes page! Main Host: Clyde Wright, Special Guests: Tim O’Neill, Co-hosts: Katie Alexa and Aaron Brown, Producer: Andy Lee, Photos: Shane Karns
