Stax Museum of American Soul Music

We recorded our show in Memphis, Tenn., this week, where Carla Thomas is a soul legend. Born in Memphis, Thomas scored her first hit single for Stax Records at the age of 18, and had many more, including duets with Otis Redding and other stars.

We’ve invited her to play a game called “Thomas, meet Thomas.” Three questions about other people who are also named Thomas.
