In December we celebrated the birth of a the boy king but in January, we celebrate the birth of another King -- the undisputed King of Rock and Roll, Elvis Aaron Presley. Born in Tupelo, MS, Elvis made his way to Memphis, TN where he made his new home and it's still the home of the King where thousands visit Graceland and pay homage to the King. We too pay homage to the King of Rock and roll but we do it Windy City Irish Radio-style. Elvis' contribution to music is unmeasurable and reached every corner of the world including his ancestral homeland where his great-great-great-great granddaddy emigrated from County Wicklow to the New Orleans after an incident where a bunch of Carlow roughens knocked him down, stepped on his face and maybe slandered his name all over the place but thankfully never stepped on his suede shoes. Elvis loved the Irish and they, in turn, loved him. In honor of the King's 87th birthday, we celebrate his musical legacy featuring music from singer songwriter and Irishman, Phil Coulter, Bing Crosby, a poem by Bono, Daniel O'Donnell, Delores O'Roirdan, Orla Fallon, Imelda May and Jack Savoretti, The Waterboys, Elvis impersonator, Jim Brown, a great story from broadcaster and journalist, Joe Jackson, on why Heartbreak Hotel is an Irish song, The Poor Clares from New Orleans and one from the King himself. It's all right here on Windy City Irish Radio broadcasting live on WNDZ 750AM Chicago and live streamed on www.globalirishradio.com and the podcast at www.windycityirishradio.com.
