From upstairs at the historic Peabody Hotel, I talk with Shelby County Historian Jimmy Rout about the surprising history of Beale Street, W.C. Handy, "Boss" Crump's mafia like rule over the city, the Tennessee Ouster Law, and Juke Joints and hangouts like Pee Wee's Saloon.

We'll also dive into the lore surrounding the city's founding in Belle's Tavern. From Handy to Elvis to today, we'll investigate the whiskey past of Memphis.
