Ed Sullivan.....Elvis in '56, followed by The Beatles 8 yrs later in '64 ( with many great, great rock 'n roll acts in between and afterwards) So there. I go back that far. Those TV performances still ring true...like they were yesterday. They made that much of an impact on me. Needless to say, since 1995, my Saturday morning WNKU program has been slanted with British invasion groups, peppered with Presley and pieces of 70's music that carried on that tradition. WNKU has given me the freedom to blend the above-mentioned with much of the wonderful acts creating music today. I hope you can make it a point to give it a try one of these Saturday mornings after 8 ...and for those who've already shared the time with me I sincerely hope you'll hang around.
