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.

    Awesome!  I'm moving to Memphis next month and was randomly looking for info.  Seeing that there is a radio show with this setlist makes me a lot happier about the move.
