Just to let you know, in case you didn't already :blink: there are a few "Elvis" programmes on next week, to commemorate what would have been Elvis's 75th birthday on Friday 8th. (y)

"Elvis By The Presleys", "Aloha from Hawaii" and a couple more I think.

(That's for us in the UK anyway) :blush:

I hope they broadcast something new, too.

I naturally view DVDs of the Comeback Special and Aloha on a regular basis, and EBTP daily, for disturbingly obvious reasons.

Paul Gambaccini explores Elvis Presley's undiminished fame and power as an American icon. Paul unlocks the components of the 'Elvis brand' as they evolved in his lifetime. Paul Gorman considers Presley's changing but always identifiable styles, from the pink and black suits of the rockabilly years to the comic book jumpsuits of the Vegas years. Paul also reflects on the mythology of Elvis' life, with the help of "Memphis Mafia" member Jerry Shilling, former girlfriend Betty Burger and critics Greil Marcus and David Hepworth. He covers the early poverty, Presley's encounter with Sam Phillips of Sun Records, his army career, the profligacy and the music to give an account of why Elvis is still a highly bankable brand.

Here in Holland not a single programm dedicated to Elvis, even worse they broadcast things of Michael Jackson ! They're crazy!:cursing: What's wrong with the people I think.They're nuts and it's a disgrace to Elvis. Why not show Good movies like: Flaming star, King Creole, jailhouse rock, double trouble etc. or good doc's like: Elvis, He touch me. So pleople can see the other side of Elvis and maybe get more respect for him.
