Stax Astoria 1967 - Where You There? BBC Radio 2 shout

Stax Astoria 1967 - Where You There? BBC Radio 2 shout magazine cover

In a nutshell, I making a series called Wish You Were There? for Radio 2 taking musicians back to a gig in history they would have loved to have been at. With stories from fans, journalists, producers and house staff who were present on that night we'll build a picture of what it would have been like  to have witnessed a concert that was groundbreaking for its musical style, the success it brought Stax, the catapult of Otis Redding on the international stage, and for contributing to the breaking of social and racial boundaries.

If you were at the Astoria and have strong memories of that evening and remember the buzz surrounding the Stax-Volt tour then I would love to hear from you.

If you can help please email me at gemma.newby@allout.co.uk
