The Stax Story Part 1 presents:

The Stax Story Part 1

After almost four years of Midnight Soulstice, we're finally taking on the task of presenting you the legacy of the possibly greatest Soul label in history, Memphis' own Stax Records. Between 1957 and 1975, Stax has released hundreds of 45s including many unforgettable Soul anthems. In the first volume of our new Midnight Soulstice sereies "The Stax Story," co-host DJ Pari digs deep in his Stax collection to play an extensive selection of the early Stax years from 1959 to 1964. You'll get to hear the early sides by Soul legends like Carla and Rufus Thomas, Otis Redding, William Bell, The Mar-Keys and Booker T. & The MGs as well as less known artists who never got their due like Prince Conley, Barbara Stephens, The Tonettes, Eddie Kirk, Oscar Mack, Bobby Marchan and many more. You can look forward to hearing tunes from Stax and subsidiaries like Volt and Satellite Records and national distributor Atlantic Records. Get into the Stax Southern Soul sound, which currently enjoys a revival thanks to new Soul acts like Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings.
Tonight's show is the perfect kick-off on the first weekend of our W-RIR Fall 2010 Fund Drive, so if you like what you hear, please visit our website and make a donation so we can continue to bring you great music that you will rarely here on commercial radio.
