Thacker Mountain Radio Hour
Sundays at 3pm on WUOT-2

Thacker Mountain Radio Hour is a weekly live radio show in Oxford, Mississippi that features author readings and a wide array of musical performances. The show was founded by former Oxford musicians Caroline Herring and Bryan Ledford, and Richard Howorth, owner of Square Books, a much-beloved bookstore on the Oxford town square. The show was named by Howorth after a fire observation tower atop Lafayette County’s Thacker Mountain, five miles south of Oxford. The tower somewhat resembles a radio tower and Howorth felt the approximately 700-foot elevation of this “mountain” was appropriately modest for the show’s beginning aspirations.
