we are chilling in memphis, tennessee. listening to WEVL 89.9 fm.
this station is great. listining to a blues show. the singer is wailing about drinking him some GAS-o-LINE….. there’s some great radio in this town. i cannot believe some of
the things i’ve heard them say! tune in online.
last night we crashed the Ecoloigical Society of America’s dorm at the University of Memphis (thanks *John and *David), and spent a little time on beale street. it’s a lot like bourbon street, a stretch of streets with traffic blocked off and TOO-LOUD music blaring out of every club. we picked a place and ate some AMAZING ribs to the music of duelling pianos. todAY we ate fried pork chops and fried chicken, and fried okra, french fries, and some green beans and yams. so not EVERYTHING was fried! mmmm, good eatin too.
*names have been changed to protect the guilty
tomorrow we’re planning to go to the Civil Rights Museum and the Slave Haven. i never heard of the haven before, but it’s reportedly a house in the underground railroad, with tunnels underneath to smuggle folks thru.
i’m serious y’all, this station 89.9 is really good. look them up online www.WEVL.org in memphis
