On Sept. 17, Neighbors will host A Neighbors House Party at Yazoo Brewing Company. Host Jakob Lewis will lead a night of group singing, featuring special appearances by your favorite WPLN personalities. There will be juggling, beer, the actual people you hear on air — all to connect you with your neighbors and the people you’ve come to love at the station, while having a great time.
Classical host Will Griffin will sing! Reporter Tony Gonzalez will juggle! Assistant news director Emily Siner will play fiddle while Jakob — along with his band The Live Oak Long Pickers — will lead everyone in traditional pub songs, sea shanties, pop hits and karaoke favorites. Out on the porch Stephen Mason (master barber in the episode «Barbershop Duet Part Two: Stephen») will be giving trims for tips. First come first serve. Singer/Songwriter and metal detectorist Whit Hill will play a song about METAL DETECTING!
Percy the shoeshiner from the episode «Shine Service» will be there!
New York Times best-selling author Rinker Buck who travelled the Oregon Trail in a wagon pulled by mules will be in attendance!
Fearless advocate for being kind, Beth Mathews from «The Fence Jumper» episode, will be there!
