Thacker Mountain Radio is a live, unrehearsed broadcast out of Oxford, Mississippi, that features author readings and a wide array of musical performances. For more than 20 years, Thacker Mountain Radio has broadcast literary readings and an eclectic mix of musical performances to “cheering, foot-stomping, applauding spectators” at Off Square Books, an annex of Square Books, one of America’s most prestigious independent bookstores. The free show is taped every Thursday at 6:00 p.m. during the fall and spring before an audience of 200, who are seated in wooden chairs inside Off Square Books. The program is rebroadcast each Saturday at 7:00 p.m. on Mississippi Public Broadcasting.
