What are the options for the City of Memphis to finance various projects, such as the Heritage Trail project, the Crosstown Memphis redevelopment project, and AutoZone Park? 

Lee Harris of the Memphis City Council, Todd Richardson of the Crosstown Redevelopment Project, and Bill Dries of the Memphis Daily News join host Eric Barnes, publisher of the Memphis Daily News, to discuss the future of the Redbirds and AutoZone stadium, the redevelopment of Crosstown Memphis, and other City of Memphis spending on public projects.

My mother introduced me to WKNO-FM and public radio long before I can remember. I suppose the first thing I really recall about WKNO-FM is that every afternoon, when my mother picked me up from school, the radio was tuned-in to The World, then All Things Considered, probably beginning around age 8. The way these reporters and hosts took you from the comfort of your mom's van to wherever in the world they were reporting from absolutely fascinated me. From then on, I was officially hooked.
