    Author Jim Keck joins Rated G Radio to talk abou this book "The Big House: Story of a Southern Family."

    Live 10pE/7pW.  Call 323 657-1493 to ask a question!

    Coming of age in California, James Keck (“J. Keck”) grew up with a Southern heritage inside the home, and a West Coast identity outside of what the family called “the Big House.”  The home was a gathering place for extended family and friends, many of whom were expatriate Southerners as well.


    Between the warmth and storytelling of the home, J. Keck has been inspired by the culture and tales of many fine and memorable characters.  Numerous trips and stays to visit relatives and family holdings, along with a nearly three-year stay in Texas, further deepened his appreciation and understanding of the culture.
