A musician, a living legend, attracts pilgrims, then gives them trouble.
I'd Like to Straighten You Out was produced for the 2006 TCF ShortDocs Challenge: 99 Ways to Tell a Radio Story, via the "Short Audio Documentary" class at the Center For Documentary Studies, spring 2011.
The Third Coast collaborated with cartoonist Matt Madden on 99 Ways to Tell a Radio Story. The project, inspired by the French literary group Oulipo, asked any/everyone to produce a short audio piece that:
- began with some manifestation of, "To begin with, they never got along;"
- included a pre-recorded voice, rhythmic noise and exclamation
- lasted exactly 2 minutes and 30 seconds.
Read about and hear all 101 submissions to 99 Ways to Tell a Radio Story.
