Talk Of Teronus airs its newest episode featuring Annalise Stalls

Take two quirky Meldavians a.k.a. Wezo & Drave, posing as would be musicians and otherwise professional humans, put them together in a room with their various guests and other musicians and watch what happens. "The Talk Of Teronus" does just that, providing lively chat with interesting and talented guests like jazz saxophonist and composer Annalise Stalls, featured in the newest episode, who is promoting her new CD "Music For Mounds". The talk may be fun and you may get a dose of culture from the "dramatic readings" portion of the show, but the real deal is when it gets down to the music. Wezo & Drave, along with Chuck Cotton on drums (or Chip Click who sits in for Chuck on this episode), and Roger Kohrs on bass, make up "The Talk Of Teronus Rimshot Band" to back up their guests as they collaborate on a live performance. This time it's..."Sunny Moon For Two" showing off Annalise's skills on the soprano saxophone.

The boys from Meldavia (Wezo & Drave) have talked and jammed with yet another notable Piedmont North Carolina area musician, Benjy Johnson. We were there to capture the chats and the music and are now pleased to share it with you.

Working should be this much fun for everyone! While the day of filming can get long and repetitious in some ways, the camaraderie, banter, informative chat and awesome live jams make it all worthwhile and very rewarding. It is an honor to be among so many truly talented and delightful creative folk.

Talk Of Teronus with Wezo & Drave and guest the legendary Bob Margolin

A name is a name is a name...right? Well, some names are certainly more recognizable than others, it's just a fact. In the blues world our hosts Wezo & Drave's latest guest, Bob Margolin is a household word. He is nationally and internationally known and has performed with many great musicians including time spent in Muddy Waters' band. So, where does one start when chatting with an icon whose career spans many decades? At the beginning of course. You'll hear how Chuck Berry fueled Bob's love of the guitar as a young man and how the music of the legendary Muddy Waters drew him into the blues. The conversation was lively and informative but there was hardly enough time to even begin to cover such an illustrious career. Then it was time for the instruments to do the talking in a slow sultry number "Crazy About You Baby" featuring the distinctive baritone voice of Bob Margolin along with his inimitable slide guitar playing, accompanied by the Talk Of Teronus Rim Shot Band, featuring Chuck Cotton on drums, Roger Kohrs on bass, Wezo on harp and Drave on keys.
