About This Show
(Originally broadcast 03/20/08) - Journalist, writer, and raconteur Gene Owens is back! You’ve read his commentary in the “Greasepit Grammar" columns at USADeepSouth.com. You’ve heard him from time to time on The Journal. Now Gene and Walter Edgar spend a fun-filled hour talking about all things Southern, including: “Southernisms” in the language, books and films about the region, journalism, and the Southern economy.
Gene Owens has been around the Southern journalistic scene for over 40 years. His wit and wisdom is apparent as he rails about the state of the English language and harpoons many aspects of modern American society.
