Elvis 20th Anniversary Tribute, 1997

A celebration of the life of Elvis Presley is going on in Memphis this week. I was the emcee for Elvis Week in Memphis for five years, and had the pleasure of being emcee for his Vancouver appearance in August 1957. This is the 40th anniversary of his death. Over the years I became friends with some of his friends including Joe Esposito, who sadly died earlier this year.

Here is a small excerpt from my salute to Elvis 20 years ago. What special cherished memories. From my SoundCloud channel, Red Robinson’s Legends.
