KUCR tribute to Prof. Sterling Stuckey

On Thursday, August 23 , from 1:00-3:00 pm, on KUCR 88.3 FM (livestreamed at kucr.org), Deborah Wong (Professor of Music) will present a tribute show to the late Professor Sterling Stuckey, who recently passed away. Professor Stuckey’s work helped transform the study of African American history, and much of his scholarship focused on music. Wong will offer a playlist of songs and performers from Prof. Stuckey’s work, including Paul Robeson, Oscar Brown, Jr., the Fisk Jubilee Singers, recordings of the ring shout, spirituals and freedom songs, a reading from Frederick Douglass’ autobiography, a recorded interview with W.E.B. DuBois, the poetry of Sterling Brown, and much more. 

Deborah Wong’s weekly show, Gold Mountain, features the music of social justice and can be heard on Thursdays from 1:00-3:00 pm. KUCR was started in 1965 and officially began broadcasting from UCR in 1966. Since then, it has been a vital, active and creative college broadcaster in the student/campus model seen in the University of California and other great academic institutions throughout the United States. KUCR has been built by the effort and contributions of thousands of students, faculty, and staff from the time of its inception. KUCR’s mission is to offer an alternative to what is available in the commercial broadcast marketplace.
