EPISODES OF AMERICAN ROUTES WITH ISAAC HAYES

FROM THE SHOW: A CHANGE IS GONNA COME: WORDS AND MUSIC IN THE SPIRIT OF MARTIN LUTHER KING

The late R&B icon and social activist Isaac Hayes remembers his own involvement in the Civil Rights Movement, from hearing Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. speak, marching in the Sanitation workers strike in Memphis to playing at music after the Watts riots.

FROM THE SHOW: THE SOUL OF MARTIN LUTHER KING

Isaac Hayes came to Stax Records in 1964 as a multi-Instrumentalist session player, later becoming one-half of the famed Hayes-Porter songwriting duo and finally the singer that redefined R & B at the end of the '60s with his long form, lushly orchestrated, sensual grooves. Hayes' deep, rich voice and sexually-charged image made him icon of the era that continues to endure.

THE SOUL OF MARTIN LUTHER KING

We visit with two great performers who carry on the legacy of MLK in life and spirit. First, the great songwriter, arranger and performer Isaac Hayes--who defined R&B for a generation--recalls his participation in lunch counter sit-ins and Memphis protest marches, and integrating the Stax office staff. And '60s soul singer "Able" Mable John talks about recording strong statements like "Stay Out of the Kitchen" and "Don't Hit Me No More," as well as her work now as a minister in Los Angeles.

MUSEUMS OF SOUND

This week we look how music is enshrined at three spots around the country. In Memphis, the Stax Records Museum has opened last spring and we'll hear stories from artists on the label like Isaac Hayes, the Bar-Kays, the Memphis Horns, and Rufus Thomas. Then we'll head west and visit the massive Experience Music Project in Seattle with its high-tech focus on rock and roll. Finally, Peggy Bulger of the Library of Congress's American Folklife Center tells us about their Save the Sounds project - preserving 50 of the most important recordings ever made.
