"This is Dedicated to the One I Love"
I M O their biggest , best hit of The 5 Royales and the theme song for Charles Turner and the Famous Vel-Tones at the Plantation Inn in West Memphis, Ark.
"Having Fun with Morris" is not on this album But for sure I have the 45 R P M single this album came from the Home of the Blues record shop 107 Beale St Ruben Cherry because Daddy-O-Dewey Phillips told me to buy my records there
"Tell Tem Phillips sent you"
I have the 45 R P M single that is my all time favorite that he did

Fun Stuff! Merry Christmas! Connie Warren
In the mid-1930's my uncle, Bob Ewing, installed the first frozen custard machine in Memphis across from the Fairgrounds. It was a stand-alone building shaped like an ice-igloo and was called The FROZEN CUSTARD. There were two snowball-tossing bears on either side of the window where one ordered cones of custard. Many years later (1950's) the building was incorporated into the Fairview drive-in restaurant and the original bears were removed and replaced eventually by the ones there now. My uncle worked for the man who innovated the idea of soft ice cream and installed machines all over the eastern part of the U.S. He lived just one block from the Frozen Custard stand at 927 East parkway, That house was just razed in November of 2014. Lots of great memories over the years in that vicinity. Charlie lambert

Dr. George Flinn,
I met you at a Ham Radio breakfast meeting in Bartlett.
You do have many interests, and in researching,
I found you are well qualified.
I understand that you are Running for Senator
and I will probably vote for you.
I am voting for you as
The Man of the Year in Memphis Media,
because of your great contributions
to the Memphis Media Radio Scene.
I heard the caller call in and you were talking about the Western Auto Store at Poplar and Cleveland. It brought back so many memories! Your so right! The smell of new tires!!
Remember when it was just as Big or Bigger than the Mid-South Fair!!
I was lucky to be at work at Pig-A Dilly a couple of times in the early 70's when the Juke Box man came to change out the records! He would let you buy the ones he took off for 25 cents and give you the record sleeve and the Juke Box label! I worked there after school 3 days a week.
This is a picture of the Jukebox! in the late 1960's
Madison Ave looking west toward the river.

I remember that night so well! We had a blast!!! I won the tickets from WHBQ!
You introduced Peter Noone! He said something funny to you, as you handed him the microphone, but we couldn't hear what he said. The whole show was Fabulous!!
