Jimmy Carter: Rock and Roll President
I’m honored to be a part of this project. And I am super proud of my daughter Mary Wharton. For close to 30 years she has been in the thick of the music video scene in New York City. First with VH-1, she started as an associate producer working on 8 Track Flashback, then she worked on the Legends series. She wrote and directed the “Legends” show on Jimi Hendrix. When David Bowie did Legends, he said that Mary’s film was the best thing he’d ever seen about himself. She made herself indispensable and rose to the highest level of hands on producing. Could have gone further but was not into the smarmy executive culture, so she became a freelance producer, doing American Masters, Joan Baez.

From her bio: “Wharton’s work also includes the 2004 Grammy winner, “Sam Cooke: Legend” (VH1, PBS, BBC); the network television specials “Elvis Lives” (NBC, RTL, Channel 4 UK, 2002) and “The Beatles Revolution” (ABC, VH1, 2001); the platinum-selling concert film “Phish: IT” (PBS, 2004); and documentaries for the VH1 “Legends” series about U2, David Bowie, The Doors, Elton John, George Clinton and Jimi Hendrix. She served as a producer on the Grammy-winning documentary “Bruce Springsteen: Wings For Wheels, The Making of Born To Run” (Sony/BMG, 2005) and as an Executive Producer of “Tell Them Anything You Want: A Profile of Maurice Sendak,” directed by Lance Bangs and Spike Jonze (HBO, 2009). Wharton has become entrenched in the world of pop music, producing episodes of the VH1 documentary series, “Behind The Music.” Her profiles of Enrique Iglesias (2011), Pitbull (2012) and Train (2012) were big hits in the twitterverse and pushed an immediate surge in sales of those artists’ music – once again proving the power of a good story.”

Grammy winner, Mary Wharton. AKA Moonpie!

Fast forward to the present and we have the 2020 release of “Jimmy Carter: Rock and Roll President.” Executive Producer and Director: Mary Wharton. It’s a documentary of how the music community rallied around Carter, as he made appearances at benefit concerts featuring America’s top shelf artists who not only played, but also made everyone aware that he was “one of us”. The benefit $$$ they made on the weekend provided an ad budget for Monday morning. It worked! The movie follows Jimmy through his time in office and his work up to today as he tirelessly works to promote peace and equality throughout the world. His indomitable faith shines through the whole thing. The concert footage is a virtual who’s who of the greats. Bob Dylan, The Allman Brothers, Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, Willie Nelson, Garth Brooks, Jimmy Buffett, Charlie Daniels, and U2, just to name a few. And I contributed 17 pieces of my music for the movie garnering original score credit. I’m truly humbled to be in such company, and a part of a really important work. When you see it, you will understand. As always, Mary’s timing is impeccable.

The $5 BBQ 

E & J 5 Buck BBQ
1622 S Monroe St Tallahassee, FL 32301 Tuesday to Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m

Cooked to perfection with really good sauce at a super reasonable price makes this walk-up, the place to go when I want a right-now rib. At the E & J 5 Buck BBQ, the people line up to receive  the communion of Q.  A family operation, it’s almost a spiritual endeavor, providing sustenance to some that can’t afford to eat at a fancy restaurant. “A five-dollar bill gets you a meal!” is the motto. And it’s a good count. Ribs, two sides, and a slice of white bread to sop up the extra sauce. (get the extra sauce. It’s sublime. Yup, it’s that good) Highly recommended. Five star award from the Sauce Boss.

The perfect pairing.
Liquid Summer Hot Sauce takes a really good bbq sauce and builds it into a really great  taste experience. The creeper burn allows you to taste everything else in the Q, then swells like a symphony in your mouth. Liquid Summer Will Change Your Life!!! The Hot Sauce For The New Millennium.
