The Emergence of Otis Redding

Airs Friday, February 24, 2017, at 10 p.m. A lively ride through the story of the soul star’s all-too-brief career but long-enduring legacy. We’ll hear from other musicians, music writers, fans and family of Otis Redding plus plenty of his most important music. Hour One can stand on its own. Hour Two is a deeper dive into Redding's music and story. Guests include:  Redding's daughter Karla Redding-Andrews, Steve Cropper (Booker T & the MG's), Paul Janeway (lead singer of St. Paul & The Broken Bones), James Alexander (bassist/ Bar-Kays), music writers Rob Bowman, Jonathan Gould, Peter Guralnick, Lynell George, Ashley Kahn and Stax Museum Director Jeff Kollath.
