  • In tribute to Dr. Isaac Greggs
In tribute to Dr. Isaac Greggs, the longtime director of the Southern University Band, LPB will rebroadcast Southern: The Human Jukebox on Sunday, May 4 at 5:30PM. Greggs died Monday at the age of 85.

A 1948 graduate from Southern, Greggs served as band director for 36 years before retiring in 2005. The Human Jukebox became nationally known while he was at the helm performing at six Super Bowls, four college Sugar Bowl games, and presidential inaugurations in 1981, 1983, and 1997.

The 2002 LPB documentary tells the history of the band utilizing live performances by the band and pictures from Greggs’ extensive collection.
