All Memphis Music Online

Well, it's about time. Somebody finally took the notion to construct an online radio station that programs music that originated out of the Home of Rock & Roll, Memphis, TN. And listen to this, there ain't no cotton-picking commercials to interrupt your continuous groove. What a concept. Plus, it gets better. Not only is there great Rock & Roll being programmed on this station but listeners can quench their thirst for classic music such as Rhythm & Blues, Soul Music, Rockabilly, Jazz, Pop Hits, Modern Country and Blues from the Delta. Listeners will be remarked at the vast range of music coming out of The Bluff City. "We tossed around this idea one night while listening to our favorite music." shares music veteran Jon Scott from his home in Los Angeles. "We burned a few records onto disk and then downloaded them into our computer library and next we put 'em on the internet. Little did we know that folks from all over the world were listening." Scott and business partner David 'Flash' Fleischman then set out to sell banner ads on the web sites home page. "That's when our phone started ringing." said Scott after their first week of airing. "We're a project in motion and still tweaking the kinks out but the best is yet to come." offered Scott who originated as a Memphis Disk Jockey back in the late 60's and early 1970's.
Pictured here is All Memphis Music co-founder Jon Scott with promoter Phillip Rauls who consults the online endeavor. Drawing from the rich musical community of Memphis, the on-air library features music produced from Sun Records, Stax Records, Hi Records, American Recording Studio, the Elvis catalog on RCA, The Sounds of Memphis Studio, Ardent Records and Studio, TMI Studio, Beautiful Sounds, Shoe Recording Studio, The Daily Planet, Lyn-Lou Studios, The Pepper-Tanner Studios, Oynx Recording Studio and Sonic Studios. If perhaps you're not familiar with those resources, fear-not because all references are Memphis institutions having participated in the development of the legendary Memphis Sound.

Okay, here's what you've all been waiting for. Pull up the station and feast on the sounds because it's all free. Web site address: http://www.allmemphismusic.com/

Phillip,
Found your blog while on the Stax site and I have really enjoyed reading your updates over the past year. Thanks for letting us know about allmemphismusic. I have been listening for the past two days. I have found all my computer applications work just fine while I have the music in the back ground. I just heard yesterday that FM 100 in Memphis has been sold. I wonder what will happen with Steve and Ron in the morning. They have been there a long time. Now we will find out if their salaries and ratings match. I heard a station manager say one time that he would rather have a profitable #2 station than a broke # 1. I lived in Memphis for over 30 years went to Christian Brothers HS and graduated in 68 and graduated from Christian Brothers College in 72 so its easy for me to relate to all your years in Memphis. I now live right out of Jackson, Tn and let me tell you Memphis is not what it used to me. Everyone who can is leaving. The crime rate is terrible and not getting any better. Memphis is the place to live if you smoke or sell crack, don't want to work, want to live on welfare and just love to drive your car and shot at all the brothers in the hood. Why do you think the Mayor goes to lunch with body guards. Glad you got out. Thanks for the blog and the memories of how it used to be. It's gone forever but the music does live on.
Thank you for your efforts.

Philip,

Great addition to your website with a radio station that plays all the
real stuff. I could also not help notice that you have Beth Tallman in
your email addresses---She used to work at Virgin, correct? ..Back in
the early and mid 1990's she used to be a big supporter of my old
interactive music marketing business, TouchTunes Interactive....Small
world...

Trust all is well.
