Hippie Jack hosts “The Jammin’ at Hippie Jack’s Radio Hour” on WDVX which airs Saturday nights from 6-7pm. The show features live performances by original singer-songwriters that were recorded at a “Jammin’ at Hippie Jack’s” festival or for the “Jammin’ at Hippie Jack’s” television series which airs across the country on more than a hundred PBS stations. They record the show at “Studio Beagle” on Hippie’s farm in Overton County, TN.

Jack Stoddart (Hippie Jack) moved to the Plateau in Tennessee from South Florida in 1972 with his future wife Lynne (Mississippi) to pursue a career in fine art photography. After over 30 years of retail art shows, culminating in several museum installations, including the American History Museum, Smithsonian, digital photography changed the nature of everything and rendered silver gelatin print making impossible. At this point Hippie and his family turned to video and started a small Americana Roots TV show that appeared on the smallest PBS affiliate in the country (WCTE), Jammin at Hippie Jack’s. This series went national 5 years ago and opened doors to location work off the farm (all early shows were filmed on the family farm in Overton County). After 8 years of recording music for the TV show, the recordings JHJ has archived have gone into creating the radio show for WDVX.

    Hi Jack. Just wanted you to know that one of your earlier photographs was given to my parents for Christmas one year by a mutual friend Steve Luten. It is titled “Kate and Jim” (a mule team) which you signed and dated “77”. The family has always referred to it as “Gloria and Al” (my parents names). After they passed away I inherited the photo which now is proudly displayed over the doorway of my TV room in VA. for all to appreciate. Steve said the frame is made from recycled boards from an old barn. I just wanted you to know how much I have enjoyed this piece of work. Thanks!
