Cool lineup this week . . . The Turntable features ALL ELVIS this week. Don't know why but the song "Teddy Bear" always brings memories of the Manitowoc County Fair. The Bee Gees are featured on The flipSide. . . . . Read the script . . . you may be surprised, as I was, to see just how popular they were. A release from Carol Wergin fills out Skip's Corner this week. Take a peek at Skip's latest work including the SOTR project. Oh yea! We're in it too! After lunch we stopped by Skip's studio to see the latest project in progress. Bob Kattner should have been there but had to leave early. We'll get you next time Bob! On Suck's News JL shows us how technology has seriously affected our lives. (The last time I visited Jerry in Gainesville I detected no signs of technology . . . although I did detect a dialer on his cell phone . . . wonder where he got that)
You might have detected a bit of BS in that last paragraph . . . By the way BS does not stand for Biblical Scripture!
Till Next week / Stay safe and I'll see you on the Turntable!

Presley was born in Tupelo, Mississippi, and relocated to Memphis, Tennessee with his family when he was 13 years old. His music career began there in 1954, when he recorded a song with producer Sam Phillips at Sun Records. Presley's first RCA single, "Heartbreak Hotel", was released in January 1956 and became a number-one hit in the United States.
In November 1956, Presley made his film debut in Love Me Tender. In 1958, he was drafted into military service. He resumed his recording career two years later, producing some of his most commercially successful work before devoting much of the 1960s to making Hollywood films and their accompanying soundtrack albums, most of which were critically derided.
Presley is one of the most celebrated and influential musicians of the 20th century. Commercially successful in many genres, including pop, blues and gospel, he is one of the best-selling solo artists in the history of recorded music, with estimated record sales of around 600 million units worldwide. He won three Grammys, also receiving the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award at age 36, and has been inducted into multiple music halls of fame.
