Episode 235: After a remarkable life in show business and soul music, Charles "Wigg" Walker moved back to his native Nashville in the 90s, and he's been an important fixture in Music City ever since, a one-of-a-kind voice in soul and blues. It started on Jefferson Street in his teens. Then he moved to New York, opened shows for James Brown, played the Apollo Theater and held down Harlem residencies. He lived overseas in the post disco era. And he's recorded all the way through, including some great albums in the 2000s with The Dynamites. Now he holds court every weekend at Soul Brunch at ACME Feed & Seed on Broadway, and that's where we sat down to reflect on his 83 years.
