Our fall fundraiser is a celebration of Stax Records' 60th anniversary. For one week, we've changed our sound to become a Memphis soul station from the 1960's. As part of the celebratory mood, we are asking listeners to support the music and the radio station that plays it. Contribute by calling 1.800.272.6492, or online at the red DONATE button above.

Be listening for the 100 Best Stax Trax of the 1960's countdown on Friday, October 20.

"stacks of wax"
Christine Sanley

1967 is coming! When you turn on your radio on Friday, June 9th, don't be alarmed. You will indeed have stepped into a psychedelic time machine.

 

What was radio like in 1967? There weren't many, but the cool progressive stations were just getting started, Monterey International Pop took place that June, and it launched a summer of migration - the Summer of Love. Come along as we relive those heady months of 50 years ago.

 

Bob Dylan "Blonde on Blonde"
Artist

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the release of Bob Dylan's "Greatest Hits," which gathered tracks from his first seven albums. Plus, we will celebrate 51 years since the release of "Blonde on Blonde," the release of his 38th album ("Triplicate"), and Bob Dylan being awarded the Nobel Prize for literature. 

We are not expecting Bob to show up to accept our accolades, but we do hope you will join us as we celebrate all things Bob, from March 17-24.

Anyone who calls or goes online, whether you make a contribution, or not, is going to be entered into the drawing to win this guitar signed by Derek and Susan of Tedeschi Trucks Band! And an acoustic signed by the members of Boy & Bear!
