The Best Station on Earth - today & every day.
It's apparent how very much we owe to Sam Phillips' forward-thinking & progressive attitudes (racially notably for one) & determination & numerous other unique qualities of character !

great interview!

Love how often / when this happens: The one artists play in the 'off time' /non-scheduled tracks in the studio turns out to be the relevant on-point stuff!
Often the case w/ the great 'B-Sides'...

GREAT interview Rex

"Rockabilly trumpet"(?!) There may be an alternate universe where that caught on in a big way...

I wonder what was in the foreground on our right that someone decided to put that picture of part of a car over.

Okay that Sam Cook ad was way to long. And not so funny.

He should have said never bring a hooker back to your motel room and take a shower leaving her alone with your clothes.

Santa Claus is supposed to bring me the Sam Phillips bio. I saw a copy for the first time today at Barnes & Noble. Can't wait to read it. I got to hang out with Peter Guralnick in Memphis at the Ponderosa Stomp and the Stax studio nearly a decade ago.
