Every Auburn grad thinks that their years were the glory days of confrontational evangelism on The Plains (I wrote my first English composition paper on my first experience; in ’97 it was bagpipes, not Rickrolling.)
But when we read tweeted reports of a concourse preacher helping to make memories for the current crop of Auburn students Wednesday morning, we knew it was a perfect chance to honor cross-generational superstar Bro. Jed Smock… by celebrating his theory on rock ‘n’ roll.
These recently rediscovered (on our end, anways — can’t remember exactly where we got them) field-recording promo drops for WEGL were, we think, produced sometime in the mid-90s (let us know if we’re wrong). But their message is timeless: Brother Jed prefers rap.
Have some concourse preacher memories? Please share. Then repent.
