Off topic comment: what if instead of the generic music that Overton Square currently has pumping through the outdoor speakers, we had local tunes from past and present, i.e., Stax, Sun, some of the artists listed above (who have some really fun tunes)? More Memphis flavor, less like a mall in Anywhere, USA. Just an idea.
