Wichita featured in Tennessean podcast story

Our friend Wichita Rutherford is profiled and quoted in an article in today’s online edition of Tennessean.com, the web version of Nashville’s hometown newspaper, The Tennessean. Rutherford’s podcast, 5 Minutes With Wichita, has become an Internet sensation, with bluegrass, pop and rock music stars lining up to play the straight man to Wichita’s gags and yarns.

The article is about podcasting from Nashville, and also covers the work of Candace Corrigan, whose podcast, The Nashville Nobody Knows, has also profiled bluegrass and acoustic artists in her quest to bring more attention to deserving musicians, singers and songwriters who have not become household names.
