Your Requests With Philvis And Elvis

What a great night of requests this past Saturday night!  You made me dig for songs not played in a while and some that we have never played.  The hotline will be open and the 'Magic Cow Bell' will be ringing when its trivia time this Saturday night. We will also feature a few Elvis favorites and rare cuts.  

Many of us can well remember where we were on August 16th of 1977 when we first heard the news of his death.  I was with a cousin of mine and we were taking some time for bike riding because the rain that day had postponed the hay making.  When we got back to the house I went to my room and turned on the radio.  ABC news was just starting on WRCO and the newscast began with a portion of the song Hound Dog.  The newsman than stated that the King Of Rock And Roll had died in Memphis.  It didn't seem like it was real.  It took a few hours for it to sink in.  I had been a big Elvis fan as a very young boy.  I even saved my change and sent away for an Elvis record that was advertised on TV.  I used to imitate him in front of the mirror and branched out to Mrs. Varana's classroom in 5th grade.  This even won over a few 6th grade girls who actually talked to me after my Elvis tributes!  

Elvis is probably more popular today than in 1977.  We still get some of his songs requested each weekend.  Request one of your favorite Elvis tunes during this weekends program.  I hope to hear from you this Saturday night.
