If you see four walls you’re doing it wrong

Ahh, spring and summer. I always feel like I am living in that episode of The Simpson’s when Itchy and Scratchy go off the air and all the kids in Springfield step away from the TV, rub their eyes and step outside to play. This is how Memphis looks in March to April. Patios fill, outdoor music venues pop back into action and if you are lucky enough to have a cozy space outside where you live,  friend’s gather.  For this and many other similar occasions, you will need music. Don’t get stuck putting a last minute playlist together while the good weather passes you by. Let me help! Here is a collection of songs sure to please this good weather season.
