Times change. Names change. I would like to see the name of Tom Lee Park changed to Arthur Lee Park. This mostly forgotten 20th century black musician / songwriter came from Memphis and is buried in Memphis and he deserves to get more credit than he has been given. What? I think that we could all get together now (sorry bout that) if we named our parks, roads, buildings, and waterways after our great Memphis musicians, irregardless of race, etc, -- and rejoice in their accomplishments.
Don't know if this will help, but I remember a Saturday TV show where kids would perform for packages of hotdogs. They probably played cartoons somewhere in-between.
Hey, does anybody remember Soupy Sales? Did anybody understand what the heck he was doing with Black Fang and White Fang and no telling who else? My Mom thought this was a scream, but I never quite got it ...
