Uncovered From the Archives

Posted By on Tue, Apr 16, 2013 at 1:21 PM

Way back when, over a whole decade ago, if someone wanted to share an article or photo with you, the poor sap had to go through the laborious task of either faxing (look it up, kids) or actually mailing you the documents. And not just average folks had to do this: no, even famous entertainers had to be sure to drop a press kit - a tidy package of sassy black and white photos and detailed performance information - to all local media outlets as a main means of promoting that your city would be a stop on their tour.

Throughout our massive CMI Office Overhaul, most of the old junk that has been collecting for decades has been removed to make way for the stellar new Knoll furniture from Spaces of Memphis. However, thanks to our insatiable office pack rats, not all artifacts of such aforementioned press kits have been lost. See here a few of my favorite photos from past concert and comedy tours that have been uncovered during the rehab. Surely, I can't be the only one who remembers the illustrious musical career of John Tesh?!
