We read and discuss awesome emails from our awesome listeners, and had a little fun, too. 🙂
Sorry about the Elvis mixup. I missed the Wikipedia.org “List of people from Memphis, Tennessee. This is a list of famous people who were born in, residents of, or otherwise closely associated with Memphis, Tennessee”. Sorry again for that.
This Ginny Goodwin bio was compiled by Mandy from Florida. Note: I added some extra info (mistakes and all) and clips.

Memphis is the home of founders and establishers of various American music genres, including blues, gospel, rock n’ roll, Buck, crunk, and “sharecropper” country music (in contrast to the “rhinestone” country sound of Nashville). Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins, Roy Orbison, Booker T. & the M.G.’s, Otis Redding, Isaac Hayes, Sam & Dave and B.B. King all got their start in Memphis in the 1950s/60s.
Beale Street is a national historical landmark, and shows the impact Memphis has had on American blues, particularly after World War II as electric guitars took precedence. Sam Phillips’ Sun Studio, the most seminal recording studio in American popular music, still stands, and is open for tours. Elvis, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, and Roy Orbison all made their first recordings there and were “discovered” by Phillips. Many great blues artists recorded there before that as well.
Stax Records created a classic 60’s soul music, much grittier and horn-based than Motown. Booker T. and the M.G.’s were the label’s backing band for most of the classic hits that came out of Stax, by Sam and Dave, Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett, and many more. The sound still lives on in the Blues Brothers movie, in which many of the players themselves starred.
Several notable singers are from the Memphis area, including Ruth Welting and Kallen Esperian. Justin Timberlake also grew up in the Memphis area. The Metropolitan Opera began coming to Memphis in 1906, their first road show, but in the 1990s decided to only visit larger cities.
Well-known writers from Memphis include American Civil War historian Shelby Foote. Novelist John Grisham grew up in nearby DeSoto County, Mississippi, and many of his books are set in Memphis.
to Tim and Linda Goodwin; her father owned a recording studio and her mother was a teacher. She has a younger sister Melissa, who is an animator.
Melissa Goodwin Shepherd (born June 30, 1980) is an American stop-motion animator who animates for Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim. She is the younger sister of actress Ginnifer Goodwin.
Like her sister, Goodwin schooled at Lausanne Collegiate School in Memphis, Tennessee; after graduating, she attended Savannah College of Art and Design, where she earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in stop-motion animation.
She graduated from Lausanne Collegiate School and then attended Hanover College for a year before transferring to Boston University where she graduated with honors with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Acting in 2001.
She changed her name to Ginnifer because she wanted to stand out and because that is how she pronounces her name in her regional dialect. Her nicknames are Ginny and Gigi.
In one of her interviews, she said that she sees part of herself in each of her roles, otherwise she wouldn’t play them.
One of the interesting and funny tidbits I found about her was that she attended and failed clown school.
Disneyland Meetup is coming September 15th and 16th. We need to get a head count of who is coming, etc.
