Alexandria, VA – Did you know that Alexandria Sheriff Dana Lawhorne has only been on two airplanes in his life? It’s true, and now you can believe him when he says that he never goes anywhere.

This is one of the most fun podcasts we’ve done to date! Alexandria Sheriff Dana Lawhorne and Bill Blackburn, a partner in the Alexandria-based Homegrown Restaurant Group, are real characters, and have been friends for more than a decade.

We also talk with jazz drummer and bandleader Jack Kilby, whose “Love Is A Song Anyone Can Sing” was recently awarded the 2019 Wammie Award for Best Jazz Album! The album was a labor of love for the 29-year-old Kilby, who is a lifelong Alexandrian and – like Lawhorne, is a graduate of T.C. Williams High School.

Kilby is a great artist, and we hope you enjoy the interview!
