WROX Radio owner Paul Wilson, seated right, interviews Maie Smith, left, Sunflower Festival booking chairman, and John Sherman, co-chairman, about highlights of the approaching 29th annual Sunflower River Blues and Gospel Festival, for a 45-minute community documentary. Partnering with the festival scheduled in downtown Clarksdale August 12-13-14, WROX has been associated with the celebration since it was founded with legendary broadcaster WROX DJ Early Wright as its spiritual leader. Wilson will be the festival's Main Stage announcer Saturday evening, August 13. Lineups and festival updates are available on the festival's website: www.sunflowerfest.org. Volunteers are invited to attend the Sunflower's 6 p.m. Monday meetings at the Delta Blues Museum beginning July 11 and continuing each week until the festival dates.
