Otis Redding's 75th

Sep 6, 2016

September 9/11

Crossroads teams up with Global Village and Strange Currency to mark what would have been Otis Redding’s 75th birthday. We’ll hear the first tracks the Southern Soul legend did with Stax, classic recordings from throughout his career, several of his posthumous albums, which also featured a number of his classics, and a couple of great Redding covers.


Steven L. Jones is known for demonstrating his sheer joy in playing the Hammond B-3 organ. He’s been playing at numerous church services across the city for more than four decades.

A local chapter of the Gospel Music Workshop of America decided it was time to recognize many years of musical service with a tribute coming up this weekend. KMUW’s Carla Eckels talks to Steven about his music and his impact on the community.

  1. Money Chicha – Echo en Mexico (VampiSoul)
