Sweet Memphis

Korva talks with Fred Hay about his new book, Goin' Back to Sweet Memphis: Conversations with the Blues. As a college student in the early '70s, Hay recorded the stories and songs of several Memphis blues legends. All of them have passed on, but their stories remain in Hay's book. (Goin' Back to Sweet Memphis University of Georgia Press; ISBN: 0820323012)
