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.

    Oohh, I'll have to check out the Otis Redding song. I've been listening to a lot of his music lately, but I've never heard "Don't Be Afraid of Love."
