You mean something like this isn't going to be carried on Shade 45. How dare the folks over there at sirius put Elvis week on Elvis radio this is the worst decision yet. Now really where else would they put Elvis week, but on Elvis radio. I think i will tune in to see just what goes on during Elvis week. I am sure of it that this will be something every Elvis fan that has sirius will tune into.

This time in August marks the 28th anniversary of the King's death, the estate of Elvis tries to turn this time into a celebration on his life and career, and thousands flock to Memphis this time every year to pay their respects at Graceland and the gravesite of Elvis.

Why in the world would they do that, isn't it enough to have a freaking Elvis Channel. Now the rest of us that think he was a hack, have to be exposed to it.

You don't have a clue just how influential Elvis really was.

Both John Lennon and Paul McCartney stated that if it hadn't been for Elvis, the Beatles would've never been.

If it weren't for the Beatles, we'd still be listening to clones of singers like Connie Francis and Frankie Valli.

Bono of U2 was dead on the money, when he said that Elvis was the "big bang of Rock 'n Roll." He launched a worldwide musical revolution that changed the world.
