Memphis Sounds with George Klein

In 2004, the library’s TV station (WYPL) first aired a new show called “Memphis Sounds with George Klein.”  Each month George Klein would sit down with local musicians, legends and others related to the music industry to discuss the past, present, and future of our city’s musical heritage.  We have digitized a few episodes of that show and they are now available for your viewing pleasure on Dig Memphis.  They will eventually be added to our Vimeo channel as well. So if you’d like to hear from Jerry Lee Lewis, Isaac Hayes, Jim Dickinson, Sid Selvidge, Sam the Sham, Kallen Esperian and many, many more… take a look and listen.

As G.K. would say, “Rock on, Memphis!”

    I was wondering if the George Klein show, Talent Party, would ever be included in these archives? Thank you!

    • Rochelle,
      Great question! We would love to include Talent Party in our archives, but unfortunately we do not own it. Let’s hope someone does have copies and decides to donate them to the collection!

    This looks like a treasure trove of interviews about Memphis music.
