WFIT's Labor Day Specials
Relax and chill with some cool WFIT-FM specials on Labor Day, Monday, September 2.
10:00 a.m. – THE HARRY NILSSON SPECIAL SCHMECIAL
Harry Nilsson followed his own path. He achieved commercial success in the early 1970's with hit singles "Everybody's Talkin'," "Without You" and "Coconut." He was part storyteller and part visionary. In this one hour special, you'll hear about the man, the artist and his music.
11:00 a.m. – ELVIS AT STAX
In 1973, Elvis Presley was on top of the world. He had signed a new recording contract, formed his own publishing company and finally controlled his business. With a pile of new songs, Elvis decided to record at the legendary Stax Studios in Memphis - home to some of the brightest soul artists of the time. In Elvis at Stax, you'll hear highlights from those sessions and hear from people who were right there.
12:00 p.m. – SLY & THE FAMILY STONE: HIGHER!
Get your funk on! Sly Stone used his music to sing about peace, unity and love. As one of the first major rock bands to be multi culturally, Sly & The Family Stone made a statement and they continue to influence artists today. In this two-hour special you’ll hear from Chuck D. (Public Enemy), Bernie Worrell, Isaac Hayes, Robert Randolph, Warren Hayes (Gov’t Mule) and John Mayer.
