The Story of Stax Records on this week's Fog City Blues

The story of Stax Records is more than a record-label history -- it's a story about racial integration, about black power and economic independence, and about music and musicians in Memphis, Tennessee. We'll be joined in the studio by Robert Gordon, author of Respect Yourself: Stax Records and the Soul Explosion, to talk about the music and listen to some of his favorite tracks.​  Fog City Blues with Devon Strolovitch ~ Wednesday, 2/05 at 9pm.
