I first blogged about "The Southern Sportsman" in May, and I've enjoyed reading your e-mail with memories of the show and its host and creator, Franc White.
I've talked with Franc a few times since then. He called me yesterday to tell me that his daughters, LIbby and Shaun, have launched a new Web site about the show -- francwhite.com.
The best news for fans: You can buy those classic "Southern Sportsman" cookbooks! His daughters also are selling the recipe videot apes and "Don't Re-elect Anybody -- Not Even Your Mama" bumper stickers. They plan to sell copies of surviving episodes. The site features only two right now, but they plan on adding more as they get them.
The site also has a link where you can send Franc an e-mail.
Franc says he's not getting any of this money. He gave all of the material to his daughters to do whatever they wanted with it. Franc is shopping a couple of books, so stay tuned for details.
