Up on a bluff above the Mississippi River sits the town of Memphis Tennessee.  From the Chickasaw Nation to the Memphis Blues and Rockabilly, we'll dig into the history of this musical city.  Home to Sun Records and the first all-girl radio station WHER, as well as the site of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s final speech, 'I Have Been to the Mountaintop', we'll explore the musical and human confluence that is the city of Memphis.
