Yes, that’s right – we said it – “Something BIG Is Coming” To Music Charts Magazine this August 2013
Music Charts Magazine is proud to introduce to our readers and listeners:
When I was watching the new Mountain Man TV series on the History Channel, I saw Marty Meierotta sitting at his cabin in the middle of nowhere in the mountains of Alaska. He put a large pole up against the cabin which was made from a tree. It had an antenna on the top and one radio station was the only thing keeping him attached to civilization. It was North Pole, Alaska KJNP. They had his wife and kids wish him a good night and a safe return. I was so impressed that I contacted KJNP and asked if I could feature their radio station at Music Charts Magazine’s website. Needless to say, I spoke with two very friendly ladies who told me it was a gorgeous day in North Pole, Alaska at 86 degrees. KJNP has a sod roof and has to be a DJ’s dream to work at such a historical building. It’s America’s radio beacon of the north and rightly so. Please visit them by clicking on the KJNP logo up above.

Music Charts Magazine History
- Song for the month of June 2013:
Otis Redding - “(Sittin’ On) The Dock Of The Bay”
Listen to Otis Redding’s “(Sittin’ On) The Dock Of The Bay” song here:
Otis Ray Redding, Jr. (September 9, 1941 – December 10, 1967) was an American singer and songwriter, record producer, arranger and talent scout. He is considered one of the greatest singers in popular music and a major artist in soul music and rhythm and blues. His singing style has been influential among the soul artists of 1960s and helped exemplify the Stax Sound. After appearing at the 1967 Monterey Pop Festival, he wrote and recorded “(Sittin’ On) The Dock of the Bay” with Steve Cropper.
“(Sittin’ On) The Dock of the Bay” was released in January 1968 and became Redding’s only single to reach number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and R&B charts after his death in a plane crash. Otis Redding’s “(Sittin’ On) The Dock of the Bay” was also a #1 single on the ”Soul Hits” chart at Cash Box Magazine for one week beginning on March 2, 1968 and was replaced March 9th by Aretha Franklin’s song “Think” which remained the number one single on Cashbox’s Soul Hits chart for four continuing weeks after. Redding also was the first posthumous number-one single in US chart history. It sold approximately four million copies worldwide and received more than eight million airplays. The album The Dock of the Bay was the first posthumous album to also reach the #1 top spot on the UK Albums Chart.
Otis Redding has been called the “King of Soul”, an honorific also given to Brown and Cooke. He remains one of the genre’s most recognized artists. His lean and powerful style exemplified the Stax Sound, and gave Stax a new identity; he was said to be its “heart and soul”, while artists such as Al Jackson, Dunn and Cropper helped to expand its structure.
Otis Redding favored short and simple lyrics; when asked whether he intended to cover Dylan’s “Just Like a Woman”, he responded that the lyrics contained “too much text”. Furthermore, he stated in an interview:
- “Basically, I like any music that remains simple and I feel this is the formula that makes ‘soul music’ successful. When any music form becomes cluttered and/or complicated you lose the average listener’s ear. There is nothing more beautiful than a simple blues tune. There is beauty in simplicity whether you are talking about architecture, art or music.”
