Alex Chilton: A Tribute to His Music

1950-2010

Steve di Costanzo and Radio Base Camp on WPKN in Bridgeport, CT

with audio samples including those from Ed Ward’s NPR broadcast

 

Alex Chilton fused his Memphis roots with the British Invasion sound.  A wonderful songwriter and musician, Chilton will be best remembered for his days in The Box Tops and Big Star.  Beyond these two groups he also recorded many solo efforts and produced several things for The Cramps.  His impact on many bands far outweighs his modest name recognition by the music masses.  He was one of my favorite, cult heroes in music.
