Elvis on the Becky Want show Valentines Day 2020 BBC Radio Manchester

From Becky Want's twitter page it looks like Elvis might be on there this afternoon from midday, Talking bout Love being a many splendid thing. She's on BBC Radio Manchester I believe. I think it might be a snippet of an old interview or maybe just an Elvis song. I have retweeted for any of you foll...

Re: For The Stars

There are some decent songs on here. It is a really good album but not a great one. I might have to dig it out, I do think her voice struggles a bit with the poppy elements. No, not GREAT at all. Actually, probably would have been served better by a bigger EC presence vocally, and i don't mean nece...

Re: Relatively Insignificant EC Stuff. . .

I was at West Ham United v Bournemouth on New Years Day and there was an article looking back to 1980 by Broadcaster Mark Webster. In the matchday programme. There were photos of Elvis and the Hoover Factory. There was also a short paragraph on the song Hoover Factory.

Re: IAN PROWSE Christmas show Liverpool 12/14/19

Elvis was at the football as well Saturday. Funny he's started going again now they are winning. Half the reason he fell out with Bruce is because United were top dog. (not really i made that bit up)

Re: Elvis in new Elton John autobiography

In the late 70's Capital Radio used to have music awards. Elton won best male singer but said Elvis should have won it.

Re: Elvis's most 'Marmite' project

The album I just don't seem to get on with is Secret, Profane and Sugarcane. EC doing bluegrass sounds a great idea in theory but it just doesn't work for me. Clumsy title too - unusual for Elvis.
