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.

    Wait you are leaving WEVL?????? 

  2. Chris M says:

    Kerry, enjoyed today's show as I've enjoyed them all — distant from Memphis now but always glad to hear your local musical sensibility among the many satisfying WEVL programs.  Good luck with whatever comes next.

  3. Mike Ralston says:

    I'm sorry you're going.  I love your show.  I'm old, I have five grandkids now, I love the way you use songs from several generations, all good, which somehow makes me feel younger.  I also appreciate the way you analyze the lyrics of some pretty simple songs.  By the way, I wouldn't mind if you just let your last show run for the rest of time at various times through the week.  Good luck with all of your endeavors.
