On this date 61 years ago, a recording studio was opened by rock pioneer Sam Phillips right here on Union Avenue in Memphis. Sun Studio http://www.sunstudio.com/ became the birthplace of Rock and Roll. So many famous musicians recorded there including Elvis Presley. Yes! Elvis! Sun Records released his first recording. You can go today and do your own recording. I really wish dogs were allowed in to do that. Maybe I would be discovered. The next big talent from Sun Studio...Rockin' Bear.
