Elvis Only Radio Show Celebrates 75th Birthday with Exclusive New Interview

United Stations Radio Networks, Inc. today announced that this week's installment of Elvis Only will be a special 75th Birthday edition of the weekly program in honor of Elvis Presley's milestone birthday.

This special birthday tribute will feature music from Sony Legacy's new 4-disc, 100-song box set titled Elvis 75 Good Rockin' Tonight, and it will also include an exclusive interview with Elvis' longtime, live-in girlfriend, actress and Emmy Award winning songwriter Linda Thompson.

Thompson has rarely granted interviews over the years, and during this birthday program she shares fond memories of the man she knew who has grown to become a legend and icon.

Elvis Only is the creation of its Host and Producer, Jay Gordon, who is especially proud of this week's birthday tribute.

Elvis Presley would have been 75 on January 8th and Jay Gordon is pleased to have not only landed a new Linda Thompson interview but he's happy to be highlighting the new Good Rockin' Tonight compilation of Elvis recordings. In Jay's words, the box set, "is just like our Elvis Only program in that it features every side of Elvis: the hits, rarities, deep cuts, film songs and live recordings."

Elvis Only is a one-hour program that celebrates the unprecedented, groundbreaking and unique phenomenon that is Elvis Presley. The show is the Elvis-themed program of choice for stations serving nearly 75 markets and the affiliate lineup covers several radio formats, from Classic Hits and Oldies to Country. Elvis Only will celebrate its own birthday on January 8th. The show originally debuted locally in Boston at WODS-FM on Elvis Presley's birthday in 1988 and has been a showcase for Jay Gordon's extensive collection of Elvis music, exclusive interviews and rare audio ever since. The highly-produced show is a dream program for Elvis fans of all ages as it spotlights compelling sound bites and behind-the-scenes recollections from Elvis and the people and musicians that surrounding him during his incredible life. United Stations has been distributing the show since early 2008.

Jay Gordon is an East Coast native who started in radio at WXLO/Worcester and also worked at WHTT/Boston and WZLX/Boston, prior to a 12-year stint with WODS. Gordon discovered Elvis Presley as a youngster and is thrilled to be able to mix his passion for radio with his love and admiration for Elvis with this weekly program.
