When Memphis Music 'Movers & Shakers' were ignored by the all-mighty Memphis Media

Here's a classic photo from the early 1980's of a influential group of Memphis Music 'movers & shakers' gathered at Cotton Row Recording Studio located in the heart of a city known worldwide for its contribution to global music. (L-R) (#1) Niko Lyras, Engineer-Producer-Studio Owner-Recording Artist; (#2) Martha Ellen Maxwell (1928-2014), Exec. Director Memphis & Shelby County Film, Tape & Music Commission, and Former Exec. Director of the Memphis Symphony Orch; (#3) Edwin Hubbard (1935-1997) Performing & Recording Artist-Flutist Extraordinaire; (#4) Danny Jones, Engineer-Producer-well-acknowledged Musician; (#5) Phillip Rauls, owner of Rauls Music-Promoter-Publisher-Executive Producer-Photographer. Please note: If by chance you are not familiar with any of these music business individuals, try Googling their individual names for a wealth of updated information. Whereas at the time, the local newspapers, local magazines and TV media did not bother to acknowledge these individuals for their distinguished accomplishments.
