Ring in the New Year from one of the most famous musical streets in the world, Beale Street in Memphis TN, the home of the blues and the birthplace of rock 'n roll. As is the tradition every New Year's Eve, visitors will be asked to "Bury Your 2011 Blues on Beale Street" and toast 2012. The live broadcast will include music and interviews of Beale Street personalities and, of course, the traditional countdown to midnight with the Guitar Drop outside the Hard Rock Cafe. The music continues until 12:30 a.m.

Be Sure to Watch! Live! Beale Street On New Year's Eve Saturday, December 31 at 11 p.m.


Arkansas and the American Dream
We’re all familiar with the American Dream — the idea that anyone in the United States can climb the economic ladder of opportunity — but is it still achievable? AETN continues to address poverty in the state with “A Deeper Look: The American Dream in Arkansas” and to survey the national landscape with “Dream On.” Learn more about these projects and a special night of programming after the jump.

You can have fun, help others and support causes and organizations by sharing a bit of your spare time and volunteering! Learn how you (or your group) can help others — and yourself — by working with AETN Foundation.
