McLemore is the subject of a recent and extremely popular podcast headed by Brian Reed. He is described as a brilliant horologist. They named the podcast "S-Town", which was the polite description of McLemore's term for his home- Woodstock, Alabama. He was known for being fierce in his opinions, his attitude of doom, his fascinating subjects, his heartfelt compassion for others... and his awe-striking abilities to cuss. He was described as a genius clock maker- capable of extremely advanced restorations. (And a genius at just about everything that captured his interest.) If you haven't listened to it, I do recommend. And if anybody has any stories about having come across John B, I'd love to see them here.
