I grew up listening to AM pop radio in the 60's. During that era the music was the British Invasion, American imitation and soul. The radio stations gave a lot of publicity and backgrounds on the British and American groups and played soul, but without much explanation. This museum, built on the site of the original Stax studio gives the background that we did not get. As a museum it is different from what you encounter at Sun Studios, which remains a working studio. Here you will find out about the founders of the label and the musicians and performers. It is worth a trip when you're in Memphis.
