#2303 - Candi Staton
This week on the program we feature the First Lady of Soul, Candi Staton in a live performance captured at AmericanaFest, and, later in the program, we get to sit down and catch up with her for an in depth interview. Candi received her first record deal as a teenager and spent the formative years of her life touring the gospel circuit in the 1950’s alongside such luminaries as The Soul Stirrers, Mahalia Jackson, and CL Franklin, father of the late Aretha Franklin. 33 Albums and 4 Grammy nominations later, Candi Staton is a proud inductee of the Christian Music Hall of Fame for her brilliant work in the gospel genre.
Grammy nominated blues man, Guy Davis, will be with us to deliver an installment of the Blues Hall of Fame, an exploration of the lives of the pioneers and innovators enshrined in the Blues Hall of Fame, here in Memphis, TN, brought to you by the blues Foundation.
