Today will go down as the day that I found both the Dolly Parton and the Loretta Lynn box sets in the WEVL CD library. Oh, happy day.

I write about what’s going on with Memphis music, food, arts, events, sports, people, and culture. Memphians love Elvis and barbeque with a passion that must be seen to be believed, but there is so much more to this place.

    Without doubt, the 'So Memphis' quote of this new year, "Today will go down as the day that I found both the Dolly Parton and the Loretta Lynn box sets in the WEVL CD library. Oh happy day"…
    Useless trivia: Which 'celeb' unabashedly claims the Dandy Warhols as being her #1 band? Janeane Garofalo: sarcastic, heartfelt, 'alternative' comedian; earnest political activist…
    When you have about an hour, ask me about David Bowie's direct connection to MTH; over a good many decades he has, personally, financially supported approximately 5 musicians via writting songs for them without credit / keeping them busy with projects and as studio and touring musicians; He's a quite humane fellow…
    Finally, its "for reals", Cory Branan is definately on the Bloodshot label ( I'm attempting to ascertain specs: length of contract, # of Albums, etc ).
    Another magnificent show!
