Clif Major: Rockin’ Daddy

Jedd Beaudoin

In Wichita rock circles it might be said that all roads lead to Clif Major. Beginning with The Outcasts in the 1960s and through to later years with his live music venue Rockin’ Daddy’s, Major imbued many players with a sense of pride in their scene and, as owner of the music store C Major, put the first guitar in the hands of more than one local musician. Major died in 2014 at the age of 65 but his music remains with recordings such as this one from The Del-Rays.

The guitar in its many forms and styles is featured throughout June across our music programs. For more information about the shows and their features and to listen to KMUW music shows anytime online, visit our website at kmuw.org.
