Sounding Out in Memphis
Music has morphed into many genres these days. Hip-hop has made it's way to main stream with it's very humble beginnings in Bronx, NY during the late '60's. Soul music or better know as Rhythm & Blues was the launching pad for hip-hop to reign supreme today. However, let us not forget the history makers of our times as we recently lost another legend, BB King. King's career began in Memphis has he worked at local radio station WDIA as a singer and disc jockey. He acquired the "Beale Street Blues Boy" name which was then shortened to "Blues Boy" and eventually abbreviated to B.B. Mr. King will be honored during the scheduled live performances in honor of the greats that began their careers on Memphis' famed Beale Street.
