Last man standing at Flora-Bama’s Boystowne

June 21, 2019
June 21, 2019 – Orange Beach, AL - (OBA®) – At one point it was a cobbled together, bustling village of a couple of dozen musicians, artists and some drifters who’d stop in from time to time. It was a menagerie of recreational vehicles, thrown together shacks and porches making up one of the legendary scenes in the history of the Flora-Bama Lounge and Package Store. At the center of it was musician – mainly a keyboardist – and author Larry Strickland. He recently released his second book, Redbeard’s Revenge, about a treasure buried in the sand underneath the Flora-Bama. The Alabama-Florida Gulf Coast is the backdrop for the new book.

Dr. John: For Dauphin Island, he meant more than music –

June 08, 2019
A lot of people will remember Dr. John for his music. In Lower Alabama many will remember him for stepping up to help put Dauphin Island back on the map after the Deepwater Horizon disaster. In hindsight, it can be hard to remember just how great the fear was that the spring 2010 catastrophe would ruin Alabama's beaches and a whole way of life along with them. Right behind that was a second fear: That even if the damage wasn't total, concerns about the spill would keep visitors away and cause the region's tourism economy to collapse.
