Booker T. & The M.G.’s & The Dip

Episode 34

Aaron and Brent look at two bands that are kindred spirits musically even though they formed nearly 50 years apart. With a sound that is a callback to the soul-infused music of the 60s, Aaron highlights the Seattle-based band The Dip. Brent looks at Booker T & The MGs, the influential group that started as the house band for Stax Records in Memphis.
