Zoomer Radio declared this ‘The Summer of Elvis‘ several weeks ago, and we’ve been playing lots of Elvis Presley songs including one every hour of ‘The Morning Zoom’ weekdays with Sam and Jane. We’ve also asked each of our ten show hosts for their all-time favourite Elvis song. It makes for a fascinating list of ten songs that tell the Elvis Story by covering the decades and music genres. I’ll help tell that story by also relating why each host picked their special song. You’ll get to know Elvis – and the Zoomer Radio show hosts – a little better.
This mid-August week is a very busy one in music history – besides ‘The King’, I’ll also salute ‘The Queen of Soul’, Aretha Franklin, who also died on August 16th. Plus the late Susan Jacks, Patrick Swayze, Isaac Hayes – and Madonna too. She was born on August 16th. And I’ll tell you ‘The Story Behind the Song‘ ‘Woodstock’ – and the historic music festival on Max Yasgur’s farm in mid-August 1969.
A busy week in music makes for a fascinating Sunday afternoon of listening, and I hope you’ll tune in this Sunday (Aug.14th) at 2pm.
