Elvis Has Left The Building

Of course, I’m a day late in acknowledging what should have been Elvis’ 75th birthday.  I’m always late.

Jim at My Bossier has a short, sweet tribute that reminds me why I originally thought Elvis was a fine and talented performer. It’s a clip of two songs from 1954 sang on KWKH’s Louisiana Hayride show. (That’s the 2nd clip.)

The first clip is of the first time the phrase “Elvis has left the building” was used, from the same radio program a few years later.

  1. I remember listening to the Louisiana Hayride on the radio on Saturday nights as a child in the 1950’s. I hope younger people can have some appreciation of the impact that it had on country music back in the day.
    Thank you. Thank you very much.
