A lifelong Memphian and music fan, Mark played in various bands during is partially misspent youth. Growing up in midtown offered the opportunity to witness some great local bands. Attending concerts throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond has been a constant source of joy and inspiration. Turning people on to new music has also been a fervent desire, which makes this podcast a true labor of love. Mark still lives in the Memphis area and attends concerts and shows whenever he can.
