Memphis, according to press notes, "follows the fictionalized life story of Huey Calhoun, a young, white radio disc jockey growing up in Memphis in the 1950s. Fueled by the music he hears in the black bars on Beale Street, Huey's on-air antics and unstoppable enthusiasm for 'race records' creates a new white audience for African-American music. Then he falls in love with beautiful black singer Felicia Farrell, and his personal life transcends the race line, too, with grave consequences."
