The Dreamcast is a podcast created by the students of the Otis Music Camp in Macon, Georgia, a project of the Otis Redding Foundation. Each episode of the Dreamcast will feature stories and conversations with exceptional artists from our hometown of Macon, GA, and around the world.
In this episode, we spoke with the multifaceted Jared Wright,a Macon-based curator, archivist, and historian who specializes in 20th century popular culture and music. He has led award-winning exhibition projects, including Mercer Music at Capricorn, which interprets the story of an independent, Southern record label. He holds M.A. degrees in history, public history, and museum studies from Mercer University and the University of West Georgia.
Wright is also a sometimes-musician, and he uses that experience to inform research and development work into the growth of music scenes and the impact of musical education on a community. He is currently partnering with the Otis Redding Foundation in an effort to expand the organization’s musical outreach.
