Dec 17, 2019 Season 1 Episode 2
Amy Connah Hudson/Cameron Connah

Before show host Amy Connah Hudson ever knew she’d be producing a podcast, she was simply on a mission. She was determined to visit with as many people as she could to capture stories about her parents who had both passed away in 2016. This mission brought her to Baltimore, MD in the summer of 2017 where she interviewed family members, including cousins Lee and Cameron Connah. They each shared about the impact her father, Atlanta artist and musician Whit Connah, had on their lives. Today’s show takes us back in time to Cameron’s basement where Amy sat down to talk with Cameron.

Whether you knew Whit or not, you’re going to feel the essence of the man in Episode #2. And you’re going to hear some really good music! Cameron talks about Whit’s musical tastes and style, then dives deep into his favorite Whit songs. He describes how – through their musical connection – he discovered a kinship with his uncle that goes deeper than blood. Listen to hear the rest of the story.
