Ep 2 Sam Phillips and Sun Records

It is January 3, 1953 in Memphis. Former DJ and radio sound engineer
Sam Phillips is about to fulfil a dream, just 2 days shy of his 30th
birthday. While working at WLAY in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, Phillips
fell in love with the music that he heard by Black American musicians
and decided to move to Memphis and open the Memphis Recording
Service at 706 Union Avenue with his assistant, Marion Keisker. Their
goal is to provide African American musicians with a chance to get their
music on records. Phillips’ slogan for the studio is ‘We Record
Anything, Anywhere, Anytime’ and little do he and Keisker know that this
little outfit is going to go on to create big waves in the music business
for many years to come.
