Folk Music


“The Dark End of the Street”, written by a white hipster from rural Alabama and a Memphis session musician and producer and sung by an ex-Gospel singer in 1967, is the greatest cheating song ever and the perfect soul ballad. Later covered by California hippies, country duets, and group harmonizers. Dan Penn, Chips Moman, James Carr, and other heroes of Southern music can be heard every week here: from Muscles Shoals, Memphis, Nashville, Austin, and Lafayette, Louisiana into your home on the South Side of Chicago.
