Michael Ray FitzGerald - Jacksonville and the Roots of Southern Rock

Screen Shot 2020-11-16 at 1.09.16 PM.png

Michael Ray Fitzgerald's new book explains how Jacksonville, Florida, was the birthplace many great Southern Rock Bands.

Michael Stock's Folk and Acoustic Music has been a mainstay of the South Florida airwaves since 1981, bringing listeners the best of traditional and contemporary folk music every Sundays from 2 to 5 pm. The show's uniqueness lies in its avoidance of the trite fare so common on commercial radio, a characteristic born of Michael's affinity for the heartfelt and original songs of folk musicians and his aversion to playing the same music that is already repeated countless times daily on other stations.
