The Thacker Mountain Radio show can be heard live on Thursday nights on Rebel Radio (92.1 FM) and again each Saturday night state-wide on your local Mississippi Public Broadcasting (MPB) station (or at http://mpbonline.org/Programs/listen_live). Visit www.thackermountain.com for information on how to stream these broadcasts from your computer.

Thacker Mountain Radio was the brain child of two Southern Studies graduate students, Caroline Herring and Bryan Ledford, in 1996. Since then, with great support from Square Books’ Richard Howorth, our Thacker family, and the Board of Directors, the show has grown in scope to be syndicated statewide, supports a full-time executive director and produces nearly 30 shows each year in Oxford and various cities across the state.
