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