Yourself: The Stax Records Story
A history of Stax Records: (More info) http://www.pbs.org/wnet/gperf/shows/stax/index.html
|Between 1959 and 1975, Stax Records in Memphis, Tennessee released international chart-topping hits such as
"Soul Man," "Dock of the Bay," "Green Onions," "Midnight Hour," "Respect
Yourself," and the theme from SHAFT. The label's artists included Otis Redding, Sam & Dave, Booker T. & the MG's, Rufus and Carla Thomas, the Staple Singers,
Isaac Hayes, and even Richard Pryor and Jesse Jackson. Founded by a white conservative bank teller who played
country fiddle music, Stax became the preeminent soul music label in America, and became identified with the civil
rights movement of the 1960s and '70s. RESPECT YOURSELF documents the Stax label, its visionaries, and most of
all, its music.

to Z! 2,000 songs from The Drive library alphabetically,
Listener feedback keeps the music on The Drive interesting as you suggest songs for us to play and songs
for us to give a break. Nothing highlights those changes more than playing a huge chunk of the library in alphabetical
order. So this week, we'll do just that with The Drive A to Z · 2010. Built by you and your suggestions.
We couldn't possibly play everything in our library in the week or so this will take, but you'll get a great idea
of the variety that makes up the Soundtrack of Our Lives.
