Elvis

The Public Radio program "American Routes"  had a nice two-hour show on Elvis tonight, with interviews and music.  It was a sympathetic portrayal. You can search it out here:

And my favorite weekly blue show has an Elvis feature tonight too.  Most of you are beyond Michigan FM range bt the program is streamed for two weeks after broadcast:

I went on the sites you linked.  By the time I got there, Elvis was gone.  You are fortunate to have radio stations in your area that still play music.  All we have is politics, sports and Spanish.  We only have one decent FM station in all of Phoenix and it is on the Indian Reservation, almost 80 miles away.  94.1 "The Ride".  This station has huge power and a really good local country music format.


We used to have an AM station, KMYL that was connected to the Music of Your Life format.  That station lasted about three years, then it went to Christian talk.  I tried to access Music of your life on the Internet, but that was not successful.


My wife would collect dog poop if it said "Elvis" on it.   ;)




I don't need Google.  My wife says she knows everything.

Thank you. Thank you very much Chris.  Dangit, I just can't do it the way that Elvis did.

I saw Elvis live in 1974 in Louisville, Ky.  Here's a little bit of it that I found on YouTube.  I distinctly remember the part where the crowd behind Elvis was shouting for him to turn around.

You may have to dig around on the WCMU site, but they do archive their shows for two weeks so you can listen online.  If you listen to all three hours, lots of Elvis and R&B and blues, you'll hear the host, Robert Barclay, mention an e-mail from Chris in Traverse City.  Guess who....  In any event, here's the link for the program:
http://radio.wcmu.org/programs/juke-joint

Scroll down a bit and you can choose a date (1/6/19) and a time (8:00 pm) and hit "go"--it takes you to Sunday's show with Howlin' Wolf, Carl Perkins, Elvis, and lots of other music.

Same with American Routes.  Go to this site, then scroll down to "The Latest Streams", the orange-colored section, and choose Jan. 2, "Elvis Lives."
http://americanroutes.wwno.org/

You may be able to get that show by using the WCMU site listed above, choosing 1/6/19, 6:00 p.m., and hitting "go." 

Remember, there's a limit of two weeks.

Of course, first run a cable from the computer audio out to the console!
