Good morning, welcome to Radioactivity. Iâ€™m Rob Lorei. Coming up weâ€™ll talk with Bob Kealing whoâ€™s written a new biography of musician Gram Parsons.

He helped create a new sound that would inspire the Rolling Stones, Tom Petty, Dwight Yokum, Ryan Adams, Wilco, Elvis Costello, Lucinda Williams, and Steve Earle. Gram Parsons lived here in Central Florida for much of his formative yearsâ€¦ and thereâ€™s a new biography of Parsons--- CALLING ME HOME. It was written by Bob Kealing who is a TV reporter at WESH in Orlando. Bob Kealing will be speaking tomorrow at the Times Festival of Reading. Bob Kealing joins us now.
