I was digging in the my never ending folder of Disney things and found these attraction posters. Thought I’d share!

Fresh Air music historian Ed Ward takes a trip to Memphis by listening to a 9 hour compilation of the Sun Records country legacy:

Memphis has always believed that it, too, should be a center for country music, and that Nashville, despite a history reaching back to the 1920s, shouldn’t have a monopoly on it. When Sam Phillips started Sun Records in 1953, he encouraged country artists because he knew that if he was going to find the performer with “the colored sound and feel” that he was looking for, that’s where he’d be. Bear Family has released a nine-hour compilation of Sun’s country output called Sun Country Box: 1950-1959.
