Happy Birthday Elvis!

Elvis Presley was born on January 8th 1935.  Saturday night during Those Were The Days on WRCO, I will be playing Elvis' biggest movie songs.  While many of his movies are considered lightweight,  I have always enjoyed them.   Starting with Love Me Tender in 1956 and ending with Change Of Habit in 1969,  Elvis made as many as three movies a year.  While some of the music was not that great, some of Elvis best known songs came from movies including:  Love Me Tender,  (Let Me Be Your) Teddy Bear,  Return To Sender,  Rubberneckin',  and Jailhouse Rock. 

Join me for some Elvis classics and all of your requests Saturday night on WRCO FM 100.9 and wrco.com.  Check out forgottenhits.com for interviews from our archives most Saturdays in 2022. This week you will be able to hear from a few of Elvis' pals that we have talked with through the years.  You could win a prize and prove that you do remember a few things from the past.  It has been a pleasure to talk with new long distance friends now that our show can be heard all over the world.  Last week we had calls from California, Michigan and Iowa.  Tell your friends and relatives to listen to Those Were The Days and than request a song for them between six and midnight Saturday night.
