For a relatively small town, Mid-Century Jackson, TN was truly unique in hundreds of ways (this distinction was, of course, lost on us then). One unique thing about Jackson was, it had the fundamental elements to have fun and the people to make it happen. It seems odd to reflect on it, now.
What was really awesome was that we were partying at all. The odds were against it. Conventional Wisdom would say that there was no hope in a place this small… that nothing would or could ever happen. But it did happen.
