CGG Director Todd Kwait on radio program “In Search of a Song”

Monday, December 3rd, 2007

Todd Kwait, writer/producer/director of “Chasin’ Gus’ Ghost”, was recently featured on Jason Wilber’s radio program “In Search of a Song”. The program, originating out of Bloomington, IN, interviewed Todd while he was in town for a public screening of the film at the Monroe County Library. The interview was conducted by Rich Reardin and is available for download as a podcast below. Here’s what Anthony Piatt of Fly on the Wall Media had to say about the film after the Bloomington screening:
“Chasin’ Gus’ Ghost not only connected some dots in American music for me, it extended the timeline- creating new dots. While searching for artists of the past, you understand contemporary artists like John Sebastian and David Grisman in a more personal way. Like great Jug Band music the journey is jovial at times, all well put together, and fast paced at times… ‘Tight, but loose’.”
