04/28/18 – “Elvis Presley” on Saturday Night Solid Gold
It’s “Saturday Night Solid Gold” on 100.9 The Eagle! Every Saturday evening from 6:00-10:00 pm, 100.9 The Eagle features 4 hours of your favorite Classic Hits from the 1960s and ’70s, plus your requests! We call it “Saturday Night Solid Gold” and we think you’ll really enjoy it! You can call-in your requests (or text them to us) at (806) 350-1009!
In addition to all those great songs from radio’s rock ‘n’ roll heyday, we shine our spotlight on a different featured artist each week. We’ll play their biggest hits and even some not-so-big ones, and share some information about the artist that you might not know. It’s a LOT of fun, and if you long for the golden age of rock radio, this is the show for you! Solid Gold Classic Hits, the way you remember them, on Saturday Night Solid Gold!
I don’t even know why I typed ‘Presley’ just now. All I really have to say is “Elvis”. I’m spotlighting Elvis on this week’s Saturday Night Solid Gold. You know who I’m talking about, right? And I have all kinds of respect for Mr. Costello, but I don’t mean him!
I’ll be playing about 15 of the BEST songs that Elvis made famous. I plan to stick to the 1957-1968 era. I’ll stop right about the time he did his ‘Comeback Special’ in 1968. But that’s plenty of great songs! Lots to choose from.
I wish I could guarantee that y’all would watch the HBO “Elvis Presley: The Searcher” documentary between onw and Saturday night. I’ll be talking about it quite a bit, and there’s a ton of great info in it that we need to refer to this weekend!
We’ll play “Hound Dog,” “Don’t Be Cruel,” “Mystery Train,” “All Shook Up,” “Jailhouse Rock,” “Blue Suede Shoes,” “Blue Moon of Kentucky,” and “Return To Sender”. Because we’re staying in the ’57-’68 period, we’ll also play “Little Sister,” “It’s Now Or Never,” “Are You Lonesome Tonight,” “All Shook Up,” “Heartbreak Hotel,” “I Got A Woman,” “I Can’t Help Falling In Love” and “Suspicious Minds”.
Okay, well maybe that’s SIXteen Elvis hits. All those amazing songs plus your favorite hits from the 60s and 70s!
Don’t forget to call-in your requests or text them to (806) 350-1009! It all happens this Saturday evening from 6:00 pm until 10:00 on 100.9 The Eagle!
