Hi! If you've found this page, you've obviously spent some time on our website, so thanks for visiting!
This is where I'll post different things I find interesting during the day (and possibly night). I figure it'll take me a few days to get the hang of this, so in the meantime, have a Sudoku puzzle or something else handy.
Feel free to follow me on Twitter and Facebook, or drop me a line, unless it's a complaint, in which those should be kept in your "drafts" folder. Just kidding. Sort of.
This is also the place I'll post odd links I run across, and things I simply didn't have time to do on the air. (This could be everything from the story behind the story, "news of the weird" or a link for a great online shoe sale. One never knows.)
I had the honor to attend the first-ever Memphis Music Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony last night. It was held at the Cannon Center (a gorgeous place) in downtown Memphis.
This was a celebration of Memphis music, but I've gotta tell you, at times it was more like a family reunion.
It was hard not to be in awe of some of these folks, who have long and storied careers as Memphis music legends. Many of the ones who have passed on were represented by their families, who were close to other inductees' families, because they were all bound by the same tie: Memphis music.
There is a reason this city is called the "Birthplace of Rock and Roll and the Home of the Blues".
Without Memphis' contribution to the musical genre, I shudder to think what in the world we'd be listening to today.
In case you missed my piece on the evening that aired today on Memphis Morning News, I'm posting it here.
