Been there, done that. Touring Memphis marks my finishing working through Frommer’s U. S. A. guide book, which I bought in 1995 (the year that edition was published). Visiting Sun Studio*, where greats like Elvis Presley recorded their first songs, was inspiring. The microphone pictured is the original from Sun Studio and was held by the greats—including me.
I also visited W. C. Handy’s (“father of the blues”) house/museum, cruised the Mississippi river, walked along Beale Street, and stood at the gates of Graceland.
[*Sun Studio, which includes the radio station that was the first to play Elvis Presley songs, was inspiring toward the humorous radio show I’m creating. The development is coming along well. I’m still looking for a co-host and a home (radio station).]
