JPK To Lead Thacker Mountain Radio Band


1 comment
Memphis-based telecaster encyclopedia John Paul Keith will lead the band for Thacker Mountain Radio, a syndicated public-radio show that is taped weekly before a live audience in Oxford Mississippi. Since 1997, Thacker Mountain Radio has broadcast the voices (the singing AND reading kinds) of Mississippi and the South. The band, known and the Yalobushwackers, has had some notable leaders, including Jim Dickinson and Georgia folkster Jake Fussell, who released his solo debut album, Paradise of Bachelors, last week. 

Those familiar with John Paul Keith know that he is a quick-witted student of stage banter and has a gift for the Twitter. He has roots in the area through the label Big Legal Mess, which has released three of Keith's albums. 

Thacker Mountain Radio tapes and broadcasts on Thursday evenings and rebroadcasts on Saturday nights on Mississippi Public Broadcasting, FM 90.3 in Memphis..
