Update On July 5th Global Moment In Time

EPE posted an update on the July 5th "Global Moment in Time" from the Memphis Convention and Visitors Bureau and Goodman Media: Memphis is leading the nation in a celebration of the 50th Anniversary of Rock 'n' Roll and will host a "Global Moment in Time" on July 5, 2004 - 50 years to the day when Elvis recorded "That's All Right" at Sun Studio in Memphis. This recording became a pivotal moment in rock history and is considered "the big bang" in the dawn of the rock 'n' roll era. On July 5th at 12 noon (ET), radio stations across the world are encouraged to simultaneously play "That's All Right." This will hopefully mark the largest playing of a single song at the same moment in history. We encourage you to call your local radio stations to get them on board to commemorate this musical milestone and to help us mark 50 Years of Rock 'n' Roll. Stations or radio personnel seeking additional information can contact Goodman Media at (212) 576-2700, extension 239. It's very likely that there will be a LIVE satellite feed directly from Sun Studio that will be available to radio stations that morning. Thus, stations are invited to carry the playing of "That's All Right" emanating directly from Sun.

Well. I will be surprised if radio stations around the world don't play this song that day. It is disrespectfull in my opinion. Out of 13 thousand radio stations around the world, I will be disappointed if 12 thousand don't play it that day. If i had a station I would dedicate the day to Elvis, and play nothing but Elvis. We shall see. I hope the fans, and music fans in general get out and see to it that Elvis gets what he is due.

I'm going to try and get in touch with radio stations like BBC radio 1, Capital FM etc. and make sure that they are aware of the importance of the 5th July. Elvis deserves much more publicity than he gets - the artists' songs most radio stations play at the mo wouldn't have had a chance without our man Elvis!

It will be interesting what stations, if any, in the UK play ''That's All Right''. I don't recall Rubberneckin getting much radioplay at all. Perhaps it will only be the likes of Saga and other ''oldies'' stations playing it, or maybe Radio 2 which has a massive following these days. I can't see Radio 1 playing it all.
