“The Negro disk jockey, once considered a rarity on the nation’s airwaves, has become almost commonplace in this day and age,” Ellis Waters stated today in the New Negro men’s magazine, Duke. The writer continued: “There are now more than 500 Negro platter spinners on the air across the nation.” He described disc jockeying as the “newest Negro industry,” a $250 million annual business.

RCA didn’t want Rocker Elvis to record gospel music – and who would buy songs they already knew and most likely sang? Ed Sullivan had a rare secular high culture and pop culture variety show and Elvis Presley sang the only gospel song of that Show of Show’s run. Elvis Presley should be credited for creating a Christian Music industry and as a result, Christian rock – the least and weakest of the genre formats.

Elvis Presley sang the blues as country and country as blues, with the upbeat message of getting paid and laid, delivered with a gospel fervor. This was his sacred songbook, that balanced his more profane performances. Other rockers lurched between religion and rock, Elvis, just combined them all.

Elvis Presley’s “Peace In The Valley” hit #39 in the U.S, reaching reached number three on the short-lived Billboard EP chart, and number three on the album chart, and number 39 on the singles chart.

He recalls asking, “Is Elvis home?” Answer: “No, Elvis isn’t home, he’s in Lake Tahoe.” Springsteen attempted to impress the guards by saying he was a recording star and had recently made the covers of TIME and Newsweek, as he was politely escorted to the street.
