‘Elvis Memories’ on Blue Panda Radio Gold

Hi! fellow Elvis fans!
Coming up this Sunday on “Elvis Memories” is part 44 of “The Vinyl Album Collection” and there will be no less than two albums up for discussion. Yes two budget priced albums from 1972 namely “Elvis Sings Hits From His Movies plus Two Recent Hits” and “Burning Love And Hits From His Movies”.
These two budget albums were quite popular with fans and the packaging was quite excellent.
Also included in this week’s show is my archive interview with Elvis movie co-star Ed Faulkner.
Ed appeared with Elvis in “GI Blues” and “Tickle Me” and he proved to be a wonderful guest and certainly one of the nicest guys I have ever met.
So tune in this Sunday (Feb 11th) at 5pm on Blue Panda Radio Gold
