The Gargsville Radio Hour  #3 on WGOT LP 100.1 FM featured part one of Gargs’s interview with Rob Thorne, professional drummer for 62 years and a member of the North Carolina Music Hall of Fame.

For the latest episode of Gargsville, Gargs interviews Rob Thorne about his remarkable music career from Tune Groover studios at the House of Gargs near downtown Gainesville, Fla. Together they discuss Rob’s family history in music, including his father Bob being a part of the Big Band Les Brown’s Band of Renown, which featured such guest stalwarts as Doris Day.

Rob got his start professionally at the age of 12 and hasn’t looked back since, playing with such artists as The Drifters, Rufus Thomas, The Shirelles, The Isley Brothers, Little Eva, The Ink Spots, Chet Atkins, Johnny Cash, The Catalinas, and the Spongetones among many others.

The podcast also features a visit from Old Uncle Hound.
