Reasons to Love Memphis #2 – Stereo Alley
Stereo Alley is a pretty normal alley these days. About the width of one car with a smattering of trash bags.
But in the 1960s, Memphis underwent something of an alley beautification process to make the city’s smaller passages a bit more passable. A metal sign was erected over the entrance to the alley that says “KLYX Stereo Alley”. Apparently, radio station KLYX used to broadcast music via speakers into the alley.
Why? I’m not sure. Dance parties, maybe?
(Stereo Alley is scavenger hunt find No. 1.)
