So sad to hear today of the passing of Wanda Wilson - the proprietress of the P&H Café for many, many years. When I was coming up in Midtown is was THE place for actors/artists/and assorted Memphis characters. She fed, encouraged, walked the walk and somehow kept all those crazies in line. If you ever met her you never forgot her. Flamboyant doesn't begin to explain it, but the most low keyed, flamboyant woman I ever knew. Every artist/writer/musician/filmmaker playing or doing whatever they do now in Memphis owes her a world of gratitude in giving all those nuts all those years a place to do what they did. And she did it with so much sass, and so much class. What a woman!
