How Music Changed

    Our third segment on Memphis Blues is a bit ambitious, not only because we want to introduce you to two very important Memphis musicians but also because we want to convey their influence on subsequent performers. To do this, we have a very lengthy playlist, and I’m fairly confident that it will take us half of next week’s show to complete this segment. Here’s what we’re shooting for – wish us luck!
