FOOD & MUSIC IN ATHENS, GA

DEXTER WEAVER - WEAVER D'S from Southern Foodways on Vimeo.

Another interview from the SFA oral history archives that celebrates the intersection of music and food. Dexter Weaver of Weaver D's in Athens, GA, has a way with sweet potatoes. He also has a way with words. His trademark saying, “Automatic for the People,” pushed him into the limelight when the Athens-based band R.E.M. used the phrase as the title for their 1992 album.
