E-Chievement Award: Terry Tempest Williams
This week, eTown welcomes back California rock outfit ALO and newcomer Kate Earl for our broadcast/podcast. ALO originally formed in California during the late 90′s, and have been long acclaimed for their deft musicianship, potent songwriting, and astonishing on-stage interaction. Singer/songwriter Kate Earl also makes her very first appearance on the show: Not long ago, Kate was living in tiny Chugiak, Alaska, nursing the dream to lead a musician’s life in between shifts at her parent’s small town gas station. That dream became a reality when Kate moved to Los Angeles, where she quickly warmed the hearts of musical peers, and set out to make some incredibly unique music. It’s a full episode of great music and conversation, and a moving in-person Lifetime E-Chievement Award story recognizing a prominent environmentalist and activist.
