EPISODE 10 - What do you think of when you hear somebody say, “Gimme a ticket for an aeroplane, ain’t got time to take a fast train.?

The Boxtops’ bass player, Bill Cunningham was already from a musical family in Memphis, though he was yet to find out how many career changes he would go through over the years. But we’ll find out on today’s show.
