TSOM11: Exploring Fremont’s Very Own The Shaggs


For this episode, the TSOM panel visits the loving home of the Wiggin Sisters who would become later known as The Shaggs. These sweet children of Austin Wiggin were set on an early path to musical greatness as they formed a trio known for their fiery sets at the Fremont, New Hampshire town hall. And, with the constant support and encouragement of their father, they plowed a musical path that has tragically come to pass and has been forgotten. With the careful ear and guidance of our dear friend, Clint Carroll, we will unpack this lost recording and determine how bad the Shaggs really were.



Show notes:

Voices: J. Wyrick, S. Bennett, C. Allred, the Dirty Deacon, Blake Collier, and that dude Clint Carroll.
