Otis Redding Special
Friday, September 9, and Sunday, September 11
In honor of the September 9th birthday of soul legend Otis Redding, Crossroads steps aside for a two-hour special, The Emergence of Otis Redding.
We’ll hear classic tracks from Redding in an hour one overview and a deeper dive into his all-too-short career and enduring legacy in the second hour.
The program features musicians, music writers, fans, and family of Otis Redding, including Redding's daughter Karla Redding-Andrews, 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.
