The Arts Council of Clinton is proud to announce that the Thacker Mountain Radio Hour (TMR) will be returning to Clinton on June 15th. This will be the fourth year in a row that Thacker has started their summer season in Clinton.
“We’re really excited about Thacker returning to Clinton. It was well received the past three years with large crowds and a great shows”, said Arts Council of Clinton President, Bob Blanton.
This year’s Clinton show will feature the Amanda Shaw and The Cute Guys of New Orleans and Richard Grant, author of “Dispatches from Pluto”. The show will be performed at the Clinton HS auditorium on June 15th at 6 p.m.
Thacker is an hour-long show recorded live and broadcast on Mississippi Public Broadcasting and Alabama Public Radio at 7 p.m. each Saturday. The show is generally recorded in Oxford, MS.
“We are really fortunate to have Thacker back again. They only have four or five shows per year outside of Oxford and it is a very entertaining and fun event”, said Blanton.
Tickets for the event are $15 and can be purchased online at www.artscouncilofclinton.org or at the door.
Proceeds from the event will go used for scholarship awards to students, teacher grants to local teachers, art exhibits and contests and additional education and entertainment events.
