Elvis ... He Touched Me is made up of rare interviews and stories from The Creative Radio Network. Darwin Lamm, producer of the weekly radio show The Elvis Hour and publisher of Elvis - The Magazine began collecting these short, fun, intimate strories in August 1977.
From the press-release:
Elvis touched so many people in so many ways, from the Movie Star to the gas station attendant and from US Presidents to "Joe the fan". They each reflect on that one special encounter with Elvis that affected or changed the direction of their lives forever. There are only a few people who knew Elvis well enough to write their own book, but many who share that one special moment or event with Elvis.
This book encompasses over 200 hours of rare interviews that have never before been printed all together in one collection. Read and feel the excitement, fun and joy that Elvis brought to people like: Johnny Cash, Paul McCartney, Brenda Lee, Pat Boone, Carl Perkins, Steve Allen, Roy Orbison, Frankie Avalon, Johnny Tillotson, Eddie Rabbit and more. This book includes 38 photographs and anecdotes that all Elvis fans and friends will find amusing and touching. This is the first in the series and will be highly anticipated by all Elvis collectors.
