NBC are closing down their famous studios where Elvis recorded his ’68 Comeback Special. NBC, the host of many TV shows, is moving to away from its legendary Burbank Studios at 3000 West Alameda Avenue in Los Angeles to a new development opposite Universal Studios and Universal Studios Hollywood theme park, leaving the Burbank site open for sale and redevelopment.
Almost 40 years ago, Elvis filmed the groundbreaking TV special Elvis for NBC at Burbank, which later become known as the ’68 Comeback Special. Recently the studios have been the home of The Tonight Show With Jay Leno.

Some 40 years nearly since the Singer Special, and so many other productions, is it really worth it to abandon the old studio? C'mon, NBC! I love my country but open space a bias toward "the new" and historical preservations sadly just do not mix. If nothing else, it would make an intersting museum. I know - no money, no interest...
