It's an encore presentation caused by illness tonight on The Early Years!

Join me for The Early Years where you'll enjoy the best variety of music from Rock and Roll's Golden Age (its first quarter century) with an occasional nod to other decades including music from before the rock era.
Your intrepid DJ is out of commission this week with a cold and I doubt that you want to listen to me. So I'm rerunning the show I did October 15, 2017, to mark the 63rd anniversary of Elvis's first appearance on radio outside Memphis.
The Louisiana Hayride was a popular radio show that ran from 1948 to 1960. It introduced countless country, folk and rock artists to a wider audience. Elvis Presley appeared several times on the Hayride between October 16, 1954 and mid-1956. Hear all of his Louisiana Hayride appearances with linking narrative tonight on The Early Years.
You can contact me any time by e-mail at with comments about tonight's show and suggestions for future shows.
So join me, Steve Cutway for the best music from Rock and Roll's Golden Age (its first quarter century - it's an encore presentation this week) on The Early Years, tonight at 6 PM Eastern Time, after the Mosen Explosion and before Come By The Hills with Sara Hillis. If you miss the show tonight, catch its replay Wednesday morning at 7 AM Eastern Time, on Mushroom FM, the home of the fun guys, making four decades of musical mushroom memories!
