Tonight’s party promises music by Thacker Mountain Radio’s house band, The Yalobushwhackers, a signature cocktail by Snackbar, and beer from Yalobusha Brewery. The Silent Auction features incredible items such as a ghost tour of Oxford, dinner for 8 prepared by John Currence, and a private reading of an unpublished work by Larry Brown, read by his son, Shane.
Thacker Mountain Radio Hour, an award-winning music and literature program, has been charming fans since 1997. It was created by two Southern Studies graduate students at Ole Miss and has continued to grow rapidly. The free show is hosted every Thursday at 6:00pm during the spring and fall, and is rebroadcast every Saturday night on Mississippi Public Radio. The weekly show features live author readings and impressive musical performances on the square in Oxford.
Tonight’s party is from 6:00 to 9:00pm at Southside Gallery. Kathryn says, “The party is free for members, just come right on in! Or, to become a member, it is $75 for a partner membership, $50 for an individual membership and $20 for a student membership. You can join online, send us a check, or simply join at the door tonight!”
Members not only support this wonderful organization, but can also attend another party in the spring, and gain access to information about Thacker Mountain Radio and its seasonal schedule before it is publicly announced.
