The Thacker Mountain Radio Hour will welcome old friends with a new name this Thursday, March 10 at 6 p.m. at 129 Courthouse Square.

Thacker Mountain Radio HourLocal rock band Greater Pyrenees, led by former Colour Revolt frontman, Sean Kirkpatrick, will perform a set this Thursday. Author Steve Yates will read from his new novella Sandy and Wayne, and acoustic duo Kacy and Clayton will also perform.

Admission to the weekly broadcast is free and this week’s hosts are Jim Dees and the Thacker house band, the Yalobushwhackers featuring multi-instrumentalist, Eric Lewis.

The show will be broadcast locally on WUMS radio at 92.1 FM and online at: MyRebelRadio.com..

Kirkpatrick says the 10 years he spent in Colour Revolt was a mixed blessing. “I was lazy when I was in Colour Revolt,” he admits. “I sort of put myself in a box. This new band is an education back into what my voice was. We’re making music that is fresh and original again.”
