If you grew up in the Carolinas, high school graduation and summertime probably meant flocking to the beach for sun, surf and music. They say one picture is worth a thousand words. Well, that includes music, too. Grab your shaggin’ shoes, and we’ll talk bands, their tunes and their stories with lecturer Freddie Kiger ’74 (’77 MAT). Plus, enjoy a guest appearance from Atlantic Beach Shagging Hall of Famer and former UNC Athletic Director Dick Baddour ’66 (’75 MA) who’ll spin some beach music stories, share some beach music nuggets and even demonstrate a few moves. Participants are invited to share their own dance moves if so inclined.

Lecturer: Freddie Kiger ’74 (’77 MAT)
