NPR Visits Stax

14 JAN 13 DAVID VIENNA

NPR's "World Cafe" has a piece on the home of legendary Stax Records as part of its week-long exploration of Memphis. From the piece: "Soul music, barbeque and Elvis Presley. World Cafe is spending this week getting the vibe of Memphis, Tenn., a city that -- like New Orleans -- has had an undeniable influence on all of American culture."

Listen to the whole show and then maybe check out some of the amazing remasters from Stax artists.
