"Muscle Shoals," a miraculous spot for music recording, tonight on KMOS-TV
Muscle Shoals, Alabama is an unlikely breeding ground for some of America's most creative and defiant music, but it is the place at which Greg Allman, Bono, Clarence Carter, Mick Jagger, Etta James, Alicia Keys, Keith Richards, and Percy Sledge tracked in order to produce many of the songs that defined their careers.
The film "Muscle Shoals," part of the Independent Lens series, will be broadcast this evening at 8:00 on channel 6.1. At the heart of the film is Rick Hall, who brought black and white together in Alabama's cauldron of racial hostility to create music for the generations.
If you appreciate this glimpse into America's musical culture, I hope you'll support the system that brings it to you - public media. You can make a donation to KMOS-TV through UCM's payroll deduct, by calling the Office of Broadcasting Services, or at the KMOS-TV web site.
