Soundtrack Saturday Night- Kid Galahad

One of EP’s favorite celebs who he respects not only for his abilities in the ring, but for the way he was able to flip “that media switch” is Ali!

Labor Day 2012 Elvis Radio Guest DJ’s-Mary & Ginger Holladay, The American Girls Singing Behind The King
Mon 9/3 9:00 am ET

Elvis Radio figured if you heard from of the Memphis “Boys”, in this raging political season, we should offer equal time to “The American Girls”, Mary & Ginger Holladay, sisters who were part of the incredible women that sing the most memorable harmony parts on Elvis’s biggest hits ever recorded here in Memphis at Chips Moman’s American Sound. Mary and Ginger are wonderful and have compelling behind the scenes memories and stories of recording with the King on In The Ghetto, Any Day Now, Kentucky Rain, and of course…Suspicious Minds (listen for Mary & Ginger harmony voices following the false ending vamp when we play the record on Elvis Radio!).
