Last Train to Memphis -- July schedule

July's episode promises to be hotter than a gas soaked, cross eyed, redneck trying to light a cigarette with a blow torch. Starting with a behind the scenes documentary that features some well known bands before they hit it big, to another short film by the U of M shot on VHS in 1998. And, if you're old enough to remember and have been in Memphis long enough, we have the band from the 70's that rocked Memphis hard, Creed, with their song, Firecracker, to close the show. Our host for this month is the man, the myth, the legend, Jon W. Sparks.
