Musical Magic From The Coolest People In Athens County

In our second hour today, live from Athens, Ohio, TOTN brings you an exciting Musical Moment from two cool cats. Hilarie Burhans is a banjo player who's been anointed the "coolest person in Athens County," literally. Also joining us is guitarist Jorma Kaukonen, a founding member of The Jefferson Airplane and Hot Tuna, and 1st runner-up for the coolest person in Athens County.* He runs the Fur Peace Ranch Guitar Camp in Southeastern Ohio, and his newest album is called Stars in My Crown. Let us know if you have any questions. Hopefully, we'll get them to riff together!

* Will things heat up between these two nominees? Tune in to find out!
