Famous Memphis Studio

I was in Memphis recently spent some time on Beale St. enjoying their famous reataurants and venues, watched the Peabody Hotel Ducks strut their stuff, toured a television station and had a wonderful time. The highlight of my trip was a tour of the legendary Sun Studios at 706 Union Avenue. In the picture I'm standing behind the microphone where Elvis, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins and Jerry Lee Lewis have stood to record some of their biggest hits! The studio which was founded by Sam Phillips looks almiost the same as it did in the 1950's and PBS records a weekly show there that airs localy on WCTE-TV.  The next time you're in Memphis take the twenty minute tour which only cost twelve bucks and experience a major part of
Americas Musical History!
