At midnight on THURSDAY (8/16), ELLENVILLE CENTRAL SCHOOL DISTRICT Hot AC WELV/ELLENVILLE, NY will become "W-ELVIS RADIO" to honor of the 30th anniversary of the passing of ELVIS PRESLEY.
WELV will play all of PRESLEY's hits, along with some of his lesser-known recordings and other specials. DENNIS WARNER will start the day with listener memories of ELVIS' life, music, movies, and continued significance. At 9p, REBECCA COHEN spins ELVIS' first two LPs in their entirety and shares rarely heard audio and stories. Then at 10p, WELV presents a two-hour documentary that covers ELVIS' early career and his final years in LAS VEGAS.
According to WELV ALBUM CLASSICS host REBECCA COHEN, "ELVIS brought about a cultural shift in AMERICAN life. He’s simply one of the most important figures of the 20th century."
OM ERIC AIESE commented, "The world has yet to see another performer as influential and as loved as ELVIS. On THURSDAY, W-ELVIS will join the world in remembering him."
