Alabama Life - January 22, 2006
On this episode of Alabama Life - Those behind the scenes who make sure legislative procedure is carried out properly; remembering Wilson Pickett; and things you don't normally hear in church.
* Each year you hear plenty about lawmakers during the legislative session. What you do not usually hear are the stories of the ones behind the scenes who make sure legislative procedure is carried out properly. Well, on this episode of Alabama Life, you will hear about three of them.
* We remember soul singer Wilson Pickett. He was from Prattville, Alabama and recorded hits at the FAME studios in Muscle Shoals. (On the broadcast version of the Alabama Life we had two stories about Pickett. However, we are only able to put one of those on the web version. If you would like to listen to the other story from NPR, click here.)
* Plus, the storyteller Kathryn Tucker Windham talks about things you don?t normally expect to hear in church.
