Explanation of the name “Milton Memphis”
“I spent five years working for the Memphis Convention and Visitors Bureau as a visitor’s counselor.  Working as a visitor counselor deepened the respect and admiration for the city I was born and raised in. My friends and family always get annoyed with my random facts about Memphis. So, they started calling me “Milton Memphis” and I just ran with the new nick name. I think it’s perfect for radio.”
