We learn about Country Current, one of seven ensembles of the US Navy. ~~~ Davia Nelson & Nikki Silva are the Peabody-award winning producers behind Kitchen Sisters Productions, an effort to build community through storytelling. They host “Fugitive Waves,” and today they introduce us to Stubb Stubblefield, the Archangel of BBQ.
