KEITH AUSTIN, the former KENO-A/LAS VEGAS Top 40 jock, is re-releasing his 52-hour special "THE ROCKFILES: TAKING THE TIME TO REMEMBER" for airing on MEMORIAL DAY weekend. The special includes interviews with rock legends compiled from tapes made by AUSTIN and fellow LAS VEGAS host STEVE MILLER over the years.
AUSTIN said, “The stars would always stop in when they performed in LAS VEGAS; we kept these rare interviews vaulted until the 1980s, including interviews with people like ELVIS PRESLEY, DION, BOBBY DARIN, MARVIN GAYE, PHIL SPECTOR, BERRY GORDY and JERRY GARCIA, to name just a few. These were the stars who told us what it was like back then, when rock ‘n roll exploded.”
He added, “I brought together the production and writing team of AMERICA’S TOP 40 WITH CASEY KASEM to create THE ROCKFILES: TAKING THE TIME TO REMEMBER, which allowed us to tell the story of rock ‘n roll through the memories of the stars, including over 750 Top Ten Hits - and the excitement of the times. In a way, it isn’t just the story of the music it’s also the story of AMERICA.”
