All Memphis Celebrates the Life and Music of Elvis Presley ~ Two Radio Specials ~ Win A Copy of the New CD

This weekend marks the 32nd anniversary of the tragic death of Elvis Presley. All Memphis Music will celebrate his life with two specials. The first is a new CD called "FROM ELVIS IN MEMPHIS: LEGACY EDITION , WHICH CELEBRATES THE 40th ANNIVERSARY OF AMERICAN STUDIOS SESSIONS, 36 TRACKS ACROSS 2 CDs, INCLUDING 10 ORIGINAL MONO SINGLE MASTERS.

In January-February 1969, after 13 years of recording studio albums and movie soundtracks in Nashville and Hollywood, the time was right for Elvis Presley (1935-1977) to set foot once again in a Memphis studio. Those sessions at Chip Moman’s American Studios yielded a year-long string of ‘comeback’ hit singles: “In the Ghetto,” “Suspicious Minds,” “Don’t Cry Daddy” and “Kentucky Rain.” FROM ELVIS IN MEMPHIS: LEGACY EDITION collects that entire American Studios output, and then some.

This All Memphis Music Specialty Show will air this Friday night, August 14th at 10:00PM (CST Memphis Time) and rebroadcast on Saturday morning August 15th at 10:00AM (CST Memphis Time). All Memphis Music will also be giving away 3 copies of this CD and it's easy to enter. Send an e-mail to and in the subject line type, "Elvis Contest". In the body of the message, let us know your name and where you are listening from. One entry per person and the contest ends this Sunday at midnight, Memphis time.

The 2nd All Memphis Music tribute this weekend begins at midnight (Memphis time), Saturday August 15th and ends at midnight Sunday, as we play 24 straight hours of Elvis. This includes rare interviews, outtakes and many other features.
