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 was lucky enough to be contacted via Twitter this morning by Michael Porter. He tweeted me a link to a song that I hadn't heard in years.
If you're a Memphis native, or have spent much time here over the past couple of decades or so, I'm sure you're familiar with "Christmas in Memphis". It used to be a Christmas radio staple, and I'm glad Michael pointed out where I could still hear it.
Michael co-wrote this song with Stephony Smith in 1985. (If you aren't familiar with Stephony, you need to know that she is a singer and songwriter from Memphis who went on to do BIG things in the country music industry. Ever heard "It's Your Love" by Tim McGraw and Faith Hill? She wrote that. I've been a HUGE fan of hers for years - going back to my days as a country music DJ. Read more about her here.)
But back in the day, the song was cut by the Media General Singers (of which Stephony was a member). Another big Memphis name, Reba Russell, is also heard on the song.
I'm so glad Michael contacted me, and I'll be singing this all weekend long.
Have a Merry Christmas, and hum along with me!
