Another question, Margaret...do you remember the Miss America girl, Donna Axum? I went to school with her I'm sure but don't recall her. She was class of '59, I think. I must have had her in some classes during the 9 years I went to school there. Maybe she was a late bloomer. Of course, I was so puffed up with myself I might not have noticed.

By the way...I've been coming to this site for a few months and it's really hard to find people on here who remember those days. I don't know if it's that old people don't go online or we've all died off. I hope the former.

Hey Charliedon, I play golf with a guy that went to school with Elvis in Memphis. They were friends even after Elvis became famous. He has told several interesting stories about the King and life in Memphis. He is in his 70's and does mess with the computer.

Elvis was cool, Budda! Margaret said she wasn't all that impressed with him but I sure was. In those days I listened to the radio late at night to some stations that played mostly black music with a better beat than Rosemary Clooney stuff. We used to dance what we call "bop". My church people really hated that rock music. Said we were going to hell for sure, ducktails and all. Paul Tolleson, the preacher at Immanual Baptist had a little talk with us to straighten us out, to no avail. I'm going straight to hell but not for liking rock music but that's another story.

Hi there,


My name is Fabris G.Luca,45 years old,Italy.I'm an Elvis Presley researcher expecially on the early days. At the mo all my researches are in relation to a book/CD project for the Elvis fan club network. It's a 3/4 CD 200 pages book about Elvis stay at SUN records done by Ernst Jorgensen(BMG chief on Elvis music catalogue) which I'm now helping detailing the period from July of 1954 through the end of 1955. The book will consist of more than 400 early photos - half of them previously unpublished. It's not an attempt of once again write the story of Elvis Presley, but more a collection of information, photos, memorabilia and stories shared by fans who where there at the time. The book will not deal in gossip or other unpleasant material,it's all about the innocence of the time and the impact of Elvis' music.We are trying to document every single show Elvis did, and we have come fairly close. So I'm looking for photos,recordings from Louisiana Hayride (KWKH program transmitted also by KTHS) or Opry,or any live radio gig or interview .... ANYTHING IS WELCOME FROM THE 50s!!

Could you contact me?



Your help,anyone's help is welcome!



Write soon I hope this is not too much of an intrusion.

Sincerely yours

My father took my older sister and her girlfriend to an Elvis concert in El Dorado in the fifties and I tagged along. I was 6 or 7 years old. The concert was at the old Jim Griffin field, it was outside and cold. My sister and her friend got to meet Elvis that night after the concert and got pictures made with Elvis. That was her prize possession for the rest of her life. After a couple songs I told daddy I was cold and wanted to go home, my loving sister leaned over and whispered very plainly in my ear, "you little SOB if you make us have to leave I will kill you". That's what I remember about the Elvis concert.

That's funny.:)

I barely remember going, I was atop my Dad's shoulders...I do remember lots and lots of people. Years later a man that worked for the newspaper said that when he was a teenager, when Elvis came here, a girl in his HS class slept with Elvis that night, he never would tell us her name..., she would probably be what, 77 or 78 now..wish she would write a book..;0)

I know who the girl was - my aunt, who is alive and well today. She also had other dates with Elvis before she married my uncle. She was/is a beautiful blonde.
