Telling the stories of the most storied place

Sounds like the South


This semester the Media and Documentary Projects Center has been working with The Center for the Study of Southern Culture to create a radio series called “Sounds of the South.”


These short profiles will showcase articles from the  New Encyclopedia of Southern Culture Music Volume.

MDP’s Joe York and Southern Studies graduate intern Jesse Wright are producing the pieces along with Ted Ownby, Director of the CSSC.  Charles Reagan Wilson,

former CSSC director, and General Editor of the New Encyclopedia is the on-air talent.
