Episode 218: An Evening with Howard Grimes

This is a longer episode than usual. There is a very good reaon for this. As the title says, it was an evening with the great Howard Grimes. Ric sat down with Howard on Easter Sunday. Dianna Fryer joins the conversation and they got to take part in a funny and often touching conversation with one of the men who built "that Memphis sound". Set some time aside and enjoy this truly remarkable conversation with one of the greatest drummers in the world.

Episode 217: A Numbers Game and Something Better & Sara Williams

The long con has been on our back for a while it seems. Those who have played those games on Facebook wound up getting your data sold to the Russians (and others). Do you really think those posts were there for your amusement? In the age of not being able to trust anyone, your beloved Facebook is about to get fined fairly heavily as the exodous of users find their way out. Also in this episode, Riv visits with Josh and Stacy. Plus, a little later on, some quality time with the very talented Sara Williams.

Episode 216: No Foolin’ & The Memphis Snake Doctors

There is no April Fool's joke, here. In this episode, Ric talks about how real news sort of killed the longstanding gag in some news outlets of releasing some sort of joke piece. Apparently, people are too quick and gullible to believe anything. This is why we are in the current state of affairs we are in. Also ion this show, an evening with The Memphis Snake Doctors.

NEXT WEEK: Something Different.

Episode 215: It Is Smart Radio, Damnit & The Daddy Mack Blues Band

We are all exposed to on demand entertainment. It is everywhere. This is a good thing. There are podcasts and there is internet radio. Two terms Ric has issues with. Not the technology mind you, but what it is known by the common consumer of such entertainment. It is an uphill battle for sure, but Ric has a few ideas. Also, Ric and Jeff sit down with the Daddy Mack Blues Band. A great conversation and a few tunes as they happened in the Radio Memphis studio.

NEXT WEEK: Under the spell of The Memphis Snake Doctors.
