Dewey Phillips had  more of an impact on Memphis radio music than anyone else that I can think of . He played Rhythm and Blues for the white listeners  That was the cross over from "pop music " at the time to R & B  ,which later became Rock & Roll. Dewey played Elvis Presley on the WHBQ airwaves  the first time Elvis was ever played on the radio. If Dewey told you what record to buy and  where to buy it ; that's what you did.  I listened  to him every night . Red Hot & Blue I don't think there was anyone in the city of Memphis my age that did not listen to Dewey . " That will flat get it "  -  Steve  & Dean McFarland
