FEED THE BLUES
‘FEED THE BLUES’, is a Food, Living Essentials and Funds collection drive to support mid-south musicians in need during the COVID-19 Pandemic. The loss of most live music has cost many musicians their art, livelihood and source of income to make a living. This has caused undo and unforeseen hardships throughout the music community. Radio-Memphis (http://www.Radio-Memphis.com) and the Memphis Blues Society (http://www.MemphisBluesSociety.com) are partners together with this drive. The FEED THE BLUES Musician help campaign in under way now and will continue until the Pandemic subsides, the community is safe and live music returns to some normalcy for musicians.
If you’re able, please consider bringing non-perishable food & living essentials (toiletries, paper towels, toilet paper, etc.) to the Radio-Memphis studio lobby, 9:30am – 2pm, Monday thru Friday, 4745 Poplar Ave., Suite B-100 (basement), Memphis, TN 38117
