Josh Davis and I enjoyed talking to Frank Stasio on The State of Things this afternoon on North Carolina Public Radio. You can read a detailed description of the show and listen to archived audio here.
Between all the great questions that Frank asked us about Curt Moore of Greensboro, David Lee of the Shelby area, and other important figures on the Carolina Soul scene, the Paradise of Bachelors record label slipped through the cracks. Brendan Greaves and I are heading up this enterprise, and our first release later this summer will be a David Lee retrospective compilation.

And as a bonus, check out these pictures snapped this weekend in Cleveland County, North Carolina:
David Lee at home in Mooresboro.
The former Washington Sound on Buffalo Street in Shelby. David Lee ran his record shop in this building from the early 1970s through 1995.
Across the street from the shop, where Buffalo meets Weathers, the one-time Washington Theatre and Washington Center, where Ann Sexton often performed, and where David Lee met her for the first time.
