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.
