1977: On the front page of The Daily News, the Memphis City Council considers a resolution honoring undercover police officer Joe Hoing for his role in the federal investigation of the Memphis Playgirl strip clubs owned by Art Baldwin of Nashville.
And council members are considering their own investigation to follow up on allegations that Baldwin was paying off some Memphis police officers. “We have prided ourselves on having no organized crime in Memphis,” council member Andy Alissandratos says during the council discussion. “But apparently it has been accused of benefiting from it.”
Hoing worked his way into Baldwin’s organization starting as Baldwin’s driver and becoming a manager of the Memphis nightclubs – he brought in another undercover officer who took his place as Baldwin’s driver.
The investigation of Baldwin would branch off into a federal probe of the administration of then-Tennessee Gov. Ray Blanton for the selling of prison pardons and paroles by those in Blanton’s inner circle. Blanton himself would be convicted and serve jail time for selling liquor licenses.

76. January 6-12, 2017: This week in Memphis history -

1978: The Sex Pistols play Taliesyn Ballroom in Midtown – the second of seven stops on the original band’s one and only U.S. tour – with Memphis punk trip Quo Jr. opening. The British band’s reputation prompts Memphis authorities to look over the setting for the show as well as go see the performance for themselves.
The ballroom, an annex to the Nineteenth Century Club on Union Avenue, is a short-lived live music venue that already has hosted REO Speedwagon’s first Memphis show.
Mid-South Concerts founder Bob Kelley originally plans a show with no seats until police and fire officials insist there must be seats. The late change means more tickets have been sold for the show then there are seats and some ticketholders are locked out initially.
The Sex Pistols play a full set with police officials watching, ultimately concluding there isn’t anything particularly inflammatory or illegal about the band, whose best known song is “God Save The Queen.” Eight days after the Memphis show, the band plays its final date in San Francisco – and the Sex Pistols break up.
