Re: “Does Anyone Remember This TV Show?

Hi everybody I'm posting to find out if anybody knows about the show that used to come on called dancetime around 1980s 1990 ish. I used to go and dance on the show on Saturday mornings but I've never seen anything heard anything about it since that time. Does anybody know where I can find some archives of the video footage? I remember we used to go downtown at the corner of Beale Street in the studio to record. If so you can email me at KJlove08@yahoo.com
Thanks

Re: “Lura Grubb's Visit to Heaven

I attended Faith Temple from about 1982-87. I was a teen. The Grubbs were genuine people with loving hearts.

Re: “Joe Canepari and Southern Motors

Pryor Olds was on Summer Ave and moved to the Mount Moriah location after interstate opened. Andrews Olds was located on Union Ave till 1965 or 1966 and built a new dealership on Poplar across the street from a Memphis Mental Health Facility. I remember Dad bought a 1953 then a1956 Olds from Southern Motors. I bought a 1965 Olds 442 in 65 from Andrews and they had an old building on Union across from old Dodge store. In 1966 they were on Poplar in new building, Dad bought mom a 98 Olds. They had just got in their first Toronada in stork which was first front wheel drive American Car. It with Cadillac Escalade were really the only large front wheel made. Just read that fact in a publication last week. I am trying to chase down one to buy. In the fifties we had almost all the dealerships in Memphis on Union. My Dad loved to shop for cars a bug I inherited. As Memphis expanded east the dealers move to summer, Mt Moriah and Covington Pike but before they did many actually built new facilities on Union.

Re: “Elvis Presley's Mystery Train (Station)

So, I realize this is a REALLY old thread but I'll take the shot anyway. I've been searching for my maternal grandfather for years. He never knew my mother (she was in foster homes and later adopted, then back in homes). She spent her entire life looking for him until she died in 2013. I've picked up the search. His name was Fred Preston Marshall and I know that he owned a barber shop which, I just learned today, was named Town and Country on Poplar. I'm sure he is long dead now as he would be 103 but I'm looking for ANYONE who may have known him. I most especially would like to find a photograph (Obituary maybe? - no luck on that search). Would be endlessly grateful for any crumbs.

Re: “The WHBQties - Wow!

Does anyone know how I can get in touch with George Klein? I worked at WHBQ from 1964 to 1970. I started as a studio cameraman and was a director when I left to move to Atlanta. I also directed Talent Party during my time at WHBQ. I graduated from Treadwell High School and Memphis State. I live in Chesapeake, Virginia now. Hope to hear from someone. Thanks.

Re: “A Strange Death in Court Square

On the Historical Haunts bus tour, one can visit the fountain and interact with Claude's ghost through a kII meter. I've seen some pretty weird things at the fountain!

Re: “A Strange Death in Court Square

Claude is buried in Chapel Hill, Public Lot #2 at Elmwood; he has no marker, but I know his approximate location (pretty darned approximate, I'd say).

Re: “Hi-Boy Drive-In

There were several things I remember unique about the one on Jackson. The little wire with clothpins threaded on it for the tickets that were pushed down the line as the burgers were made. The second was that they were the first burgers I had with chopped lettuce on it. Mix that lettuce with the mustard, tomato and hamburger juice and they were the best. Closest thing to it was a WhatABurger on Frasyer Blvd. Billy F

Re: “Joseph Culligan: "The Iron Man of Memphis"

Hi Darryl, I am just checking my post at the Memphis Magazine blog after a long while. Yes I knew Jim. He and Hershel Robertson (painter at Culligans) had a small welding shop on Poplar Ave near downtown in the 1970's and 1980's. I can't remember the last time I saw him. The last I heard from my dad is that he was very ill and did himself in the 1990's if I remember right. I'm sorry I don't remember more. If I can answer any more questions let me know.

Re: “Joseph Culligan: "The Iron Man of Memphis"

To Dave: I don't remember a lot about him because I was so young. I do remember he had a big white Cadillac parked in the garage and a big collie named Beulah.

Re: “The Grave Mystery at Shelby Farms

Awesome, interesting article! I want to go check this place out now! I love history and ghost stories, especially when they are located on my home town. I have never heard or read about any of this and I have been on this earth since 1961. Thanks everyone for all of this intriguing information!
