Dewey Philips played the acetate which Sam brought him earlier and he got lots of requests to play the song over and over again. However, Elvis didn’t hear that, because he was at the movies, too nervous to stay in the house. When his parents received a call from Dewey, they went to the cinema and sent Elvis to the studio where he had a conversation with Dewey, not knowing he was already on the air. The first question asked was about the high school Elvis went to, so everyone would know what color he was.
