January 8, 1978, Start of Worst Winter in History

It was a Sunday afternoon, January 8, 1978, when I went into work at WINN, Louisville. It was an unusually warm morning but we knew a cold front was coming in and expected snow flurries. Being the first birthday after Elvis Presley's death the previous August, I planned to play all of Elvis's hits in chronological order.

As I took took to the airwaves with stacks of Elvis tunes on 45's, lp's and a few tapes, I began with the Sun Sessions from 1955.  As I forecast snow flurries every fifteen minutes, little did I know what was piling up outside.

Chad’s Favorite Versions of “Always on My Mind” [Video]

Country music icon, Willie Nelson, is coming to The Centre in Evansville TONIGHT.  Willie  is bringing his Willie Nelson & Family tour to town and we have been celebrating over the last couple of months with ticket giveaways and more.  A few weeks ago, we had a TAD POLL about Willie during The WBKR Waking Crew.  And that poll was . . . What is YOUR favorite Willie Nelson song?  I don't have to hesitate a second to name mine.  It's Willie's classic "Always on My Mind."  And, I must say, there are several versions of that song I absolutely love.  While Brenda Lee recorded the original version, it's a handful of covers that are on my mind.  Check these out.

Elvis Presley Memorabilia [VIDEO]

I was just 5 years old when Elvis passed away on this day August 16th, 1977  that was a sad day across America. I had probably 100 Elvis cards, not knowing then it wasn't a good idea to glue them all to a piece of plywood ha ha. I have been a fan of Elvis all my life, there will never be another entertainer like him! His merchandise still sells like hot cakes 34 years after his death, and you name it just about anything & everything has had Elvis's picture on it. I did a search on Ebay and over 63,000 items of Elvis popped up, or go to Google and just type in Elvis Presley and the result over 66 million sites found, and Elvis even has a Facebook page with over 4 million friends, that is unbelievable!
