STL’s favorite hometown musician, Pokey LaFarge, invited us into his Cherokee Street studio, packed with family mementos, an antique record cabinet, old van seats, boxes of vintage items, a shelf full of Cardinals and Cubs memorabilia and two friendly stray cats. Take a behind-the-scenes look at our fun, music-packed June cover shoot and recent interview with LaFarge.

“Pokey had the entire crew eating out of his hand by the end of the shoot,” said Online Editor Rachel Brandt, who interviewed LaFarge. “We met in his studio where he hammed it up for the camera and entertained us with impressions and favorite old stories as Jimmy Reed spun on the record player.”
