This Wednesday, Aug 16th, WLR will mark the 40th anniversary since Elvis’ death. Across the day, you can hear the classic Elvis tracks performed by some incredible local and national artists, who have recorded their covers here in the WLR studios.
Just some of the performances you’ll hear are:
Susan O’Neill ‘Return To Sender’, The Kalimbas ‘Can’t Help Falling In Love’, Backroad Smokers Club ‘That’s Alright Mama’, Cider Wasps ‘All Shook Up’ and The Four of Us, ‘Fever’.
Ireland’s oldest and best Elvis impersonator, Rocky Mills will present a 2 hour Elvis music show from 7-9pm.
We’ll also hear from Waterford’s biggest Elvis fan, Martin Clancy throughout the day as he shares some brilliant insights into the life of The King, and he’ll present ‘Elvis’ Stories’ from 9-10pm here on WLR.
Let’s celebrate the life and music of Elvis Presley, on Elvis Day all day Wednesday, only on WLR.
