Tonight's show is a riveting behind-the-scenes look at the band, Lynyrd Skynyrd.

Ron Eckerman was the band's Tour Manager on October 20, 1977--the day of the fateful plane crash that claimed several lives--and Ron survived that crash.

He'll share the accounts detailed in his book Turn It Up--including the partying ways of the band, Ronnie Van Zant's country music aspirations, and his recollections of that terrible plane crash.

Join us for a truly inside look at one of the most enduring rock bands of all time with Mr. Ron Eckerman.


  1. Tom way to go and Ron what a great interview and I love the book and I have to say you have a knack for telling the story with clarity and truth which really places you back in time.

    We should all support the Moment of Silence on Sat Oct 20th at 6.45pm lets remember Ronnie and the band Lynyrd Skynryd.

  2. Paul,

    Thanks for your comment! Much appreciated--as was Ron's appearance on the show.

    I couldn't agree with you more. Ron is a masterful writer and storyteller.

    And, rest assured, we'll be promoting the Moment Of Silence for Saturday, too.
