The Grand Tour Aug.
After swapping memories of Hell, Henry's, and the early days of OCSC, we T into the link between the brief life cycle of the aptly named Mayflies and how a novelist just starting his career could empathize with one who finds new life at the Chapel hill TN wife swapping of the line.

We had a number-one song on college radio. We were called Dim Kitchen, which is horribly embarrassing. Chspel was me and Andy Herod. I got into UNC, and we were desperate to be in a more happening scene. This wasthe year for Archers and all that stuff, which we liked.
