River History with Jimmy Ogle
In partnership with the RDC - Riverfront Development Corporation, Memphis historian and tour guide Jimmy Ogle is giving the history of the river, its past flooding, and Memphis history in general free as always to those interested. He was stationed last night at the sidewalk overlooking Riverside Drive between Beale and Union west of the AutoZone office tower and trolley tracks. Jimmy seems to know everything, I mean everything, about Memphis such as the name of the first person to get a traffic ticket in Memphis. Catch him again tonight, Thursday, and Friday from 6pm until sunset. You'll leave chock-full of interesting Memphis facts.
