Truck Stop Souvenir

Seattle can inspire leave. Today on the Beat, the country music duo Truckstop Souvenir shares a song inspired by the Stranger and one that caused them to move to Iowa. Then, dancers break the boundaries of their art, taking ideas from painters and composers.

You can't muscle your way through life. Racism, drug abuse and violence can only be conquered with compassion. Former Seattle Supersonics player and Seattle resident Zaid Abdul Aziz tells how he came to realize that in his memoir Darkness to Sunlight. Today Zaid tells us how the soft touch replaced his slam dunk. He speaks with Dave Beck.

    Seattle can inspire musicians… to leave. The country band Truckstop Souvenir wrote songs based on their lives in Seattle, articles in The Stranger and their love of country music. One day, though, they realized that their greatest desire was a home where they could hear the birds over the police sirens. Truckstop Souvenir joins us in studio with their musical evolution from urban band to country duo.
