The Architects of Memphis Music

Episode 231 July 19, 2018

Howard Grimes has been on this show several times. This time, he brought a couple of friends with him. Spencer & Percy Wiggins. This is a rather important show in that these three men have quite the story to tell when it comes to how the Memphis sound came to be and what it was like for young African-American performers on the road and in the studio. Along the way, these men were involved in some of the most iconic music in history. Plus, you’ll hear some new gospel music that accurately defines that Memphis sound.
