AIRCHECK OF THE WEEK

Edition #950 - August 13, 2017

WINK MARTINDALE
WHBQ Memphis
August, 1956

Forty years ago this week we got the stunning news: The King was dead.

Elvis Presley died August 16, 1977 at his Graceland estate in Memphis. He was only 42. No solo artist had more #1 hits in the rock era than Elvis, and he was unsurpassed in charted records, Top 40 hits, Top 10 hits and most weeks at #1. But more than that he was an icon - a musical artist whose appeal never seems to fade. This week we have collection of interview tapes Wink Martindale presented to his WHBQ audience in 1956 when Elvis was just emerging as a star. Enjoy!

Hear Wink Martindale and his guest Elvis Presley on WHBQ from
August, 1956 (UNSCOPED) ... in the Aircheck of the Week!

Thanks again to Bill Dulmage for this great aircheck!
