Why? Episode 138- Music Great Steve Cropper
Apr 19, 2021
Heidi Hedquist/ Luke Poling

This week we talked with the legendary Steve Cropper.

"Hey, hold on a minute Slappy(s)," we hear you say. "'Legendary' is strong words." You're right, it is. But when you're talking about someone who co-wrote "Green Onions," and "Soul Man" and "Sitting on the Dock of the Bay," forgive us for throwing around the 'L' word.

Steve has a new record out called "Fire It Up," and  it does what he has done his entire career; it rocks. We talked with Steve about the new album, but we also talked about what it was like at Stax Records (!) during their heyday. We also talked about his friend (!!) Otis Redding.

What else can we tell you? Steve was great fun and very kind (it's that southern gentleman thing) AND told us what a bush hog is. What more do you want to know?

Just listen to the thing.
