Is this thing on, for Elvis's sake?
  1:05pm Ted:

Doo Dah Yes

Awful quiet here today. Did everyone else die in solidarity with Elvis?
  1:34pm Tom:

Never liked Elvis
  1:38pm boogie:

good answer, Matt
  1:47pm boogie:

  1:49pm Dominick:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:49pm Fiveash:

I'll explain at the mic break. Trust me, it fits...
  2:05pm boogie:

just wanna let ya know, Matt, that I sho' did enjoy hearin' Elvis do "Stranger In My Own Hometown", as well as the Jerry Lee Lewis & The Collins Kids
  2:06pm Matt from Springfield:

Swing to the West, Swing to the Right...
Hi Fiveash! Is a little quiet in here today.
  2:10pm Kristin:

Elvis pervert.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:13pm Fiveash:

Maybe, but not nearly as bad as Spazz.
  2:15pm Matt from Springfield:

George Jones...speaking of Elvis death-day, ever heard one of my fave George Jones songs, with the chorus "Yabba Dabba Doo / The King is gone / And so have you"

Mixing an Elvis tribute, pop culture reference and a woman who left him--triumph of C&W!
  2:16pm lewis:

did not see this coming... but happy to be surprised!
  2:16pm Matt from Springfield:

Woah - this is SMOOTH Elvis!! Very early stuff, love it!
  2:18pm Mikey:

Oooooo, just in time! Please play "Pump it Up"!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:20pm Fiveash:

  2:28pm Matt from Springfield:

Great howlin' from Kokomo Arnold!
  2:29pm Matt from Springfield:

"Elvis's Greatest Shit"? From "RCA Victim"? Is that some kind of bootleg label? :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:30pm Fiveash:

Totally legit!
  2:34pm SteveNYC:

What is the background song right now??
  2:37pm Senor Jubei:

I vote Kissin' Cousins, with Elvis in a double role--one jet black, one blonde--as the worst. The Elvis vs. Elvis fight scene is its only redeeming sequence.
  2:38pm Matt from Springfield:

  2:41pm Matt from Springfield:

Ha HA ! Elvis v. Elvis fight sequence, too rich! Bad film fan, I gotta see that, and Clambake!

Not so familiar with the obscure, bad Elvis films, but I've read about "Change of Habit", where Elvis tries to woo a nun away from her vows, played by Mary Tyler Moore!
  2:42pm Matt from Springfield:

And hey, this is the song Cheech Marin's then-wife sang in "Cheech & Chong's Next Movie"!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:45pm Fiveash:

Elvis kicks somebody's ass in every movie, so it would stand to reason that he'd eventually get around to kicking his own.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:46pm Fiveash:

SteveNYC: "Rattler" by Santo & Johnny
  2:52pm Matt from Springfield:

"I Forgot To Remember To Forget", another legendary country title.
  2:59pm SteveNYC:

Thanks, Fiveash!
  3:00pm SteveNYC:

Thanks, Fiveash!
  3:00pm boogie:

  3:01pm Matt from Springfield:

Ramones, Sir Douglas Quintet..and the Buckinghams! (from Chicago, also riding on the British Invasion craze)

INFERNAL TURNTABLE 2!! It's fault, yet again!
  3:02pm Matt from Springfield:

Great show Fiveash!
  3:03pm Dominick:

Where's my cokebread?
  3:04pm Matt from Springfield:

Sweet! Joe McG fill-in, first time he's done that on the Itch!
Have a good trip Matt!
  3:11pm Fiveash:

Thanks all. See you in two weeks when I will do a show that I will have little time to prepare for. It will truly be the "Clambake" of radio programs. Be sure to tune in for Joe McGasko's fill-in next week!
