"Start With A Website"

A regular reader reminds us that rather than focus on glitzy projects, the Memphis Music Foundation should "start with a website."

It's good advice, because the new music organization shut down the Memphis and Shelby County Music Commission website three years ago, and while it wasn't perfection, at least there was something telling the Memphis story in a prideful way.

It certainly was better than what surfers have been reading since 2003, because the lack of a website belies the explanation being given these days:

"Music is Memphis' most important cultural and economic asset. The Memphis Music Commission works to make sure that the local music community has the resources, tools, and voice it needs to succeed in the changing music industry.

"We are redeveloping our web site to provide new services."
