Shake Rag Productions is set up as a non-profit organization whose intention is to highlight local talent and people with interesting stories or backgrounds. This is the brainchild of Otis Griffin, who is the host of the show. He holds positions in the Rotary Club, the Al Chymia Shriners, and a number of other community groups. He feels grateful to those who helped him when he was growing up and would like to give back to his community. His hope is that this will assist people in being able to get their names and stories out there into the public eye, thereby helping them achieve greater success.
Assisting him with the technical side of this venture is Joshua Coleman, an English and History major at the University of Memphis, as well as the founder of 3 Shades of Blue, a Memphis Grizzlies blog on ESPN’s TrueHoop Network.
