Ben E. King enjoys his biggest hit as “Stand By Me” reaches #4 on the Billboard singles chart. The same song would re-appear on the Hot 100 in 1986, reaching #9, after it was featured as the title track in a film starring River Phoenix.

Pat Boone had his sixth and final number 1 hit in the US with “Moody River”. A year later, “Speedy Gonzales” would finish his run of thirty-eight Top 10 hits. A tongue-in-cheek, heavy metal “comeback” was attempted in 1997 with an album called “In a Metal Mood (No More Mr. Nice Guy)”.

The following short article in Billboard on June 19, 1961, a month after “Surrender” exited the “Hot 100,” indicates that RCA may have overestimated the record’s sales potential.

• Copies of “Surrender” given away in Canada

“Station CKWX [in Vancouver, B.C.] gave away 3,000 recordings of ‘Surrender’ by Elvis Presley this month in a contest which pulled in more than 10,000 letters. According to CKWX deejay Red Robinson, RCA Victor had ‘over-pressed’ the Presley disk, so they turned the excess wax over to the jock and suggested he build a promotion around it. Robinson offered the disk free to the first 3,000 dialers who wrote in and merely said they like Elvis.”

Elvis attending on Black Community day, with these photos in a nationally published fan magazine, were socially revolutionary. In the 1960s and 1970s, he’d rent the park when he had carnival urges to ride the rides.

Pubic Schools ROTC To Military

I was having a discussion about public school bullying and experiences online, which inspired this post.

 

 

what is “afjrotc”?

 

Air Force Junior Reserve Officer Training Corp, high school version for those who plan on going into the military, gives you info, training, etc, and in California it can count as pe or science

 

it counts as a science?

how can it possibility be a science?

(other than lab-rat in a social experiment, which is not usually course credit.)

I am always astonished by American to Canada public school experiences comparisons.

We do not have the military inserted into our schools and while we have school sports, we don’t have the cheerleader infrastructure nor spelling bee obsession that dominates entertainment representations of American schools.

Jailhouse Rock Post-production

Presley Fans Keep Studio From Chopping Sideburns By ALINE MOSBY United Press Staff Correspondent HOLLYWOOD (UP) —

Elvis Presley was All Shook Up with gratitude today. Durned if fans didn’t keep MGM Studio from chopping off his famous sideburns and bangs. MGM figured on giving Elvis a crewcut and shaving off those side whiskers because he plays a convict in “Jailhouse Rock”, the third movie on the agenda of the Presley . steamroller through Hollywood. But this caused the biggest crisis in the movie business since Lassie was exposed as a she: Four thousand post cards and letters from Presley fans poured into MGM, begging that the studio let their hero act with his original hair hanging around his sensual- looking face. His Trademark A Fortville, Ind., mother wrote “We love him at our house. Elvis has had more criticism than anyone but his loyal fans stand by.”

The song went on to reach number 1 in the UK for a single week.The song also topped Japan’s Utamatic record chart in the fall of 1963.

Touring Australia The Beatles played at Sydney Stadium in Sydney. This was Paul McCartney 22nd birthday and after the show his guests included 17 girls who were winners of the Daily Mirrors ‘Why I would like to be a guest at a Beatles birthday party’ competition.

 

Presley’s return to the charts: For the First Time in the three years since The Beatles rocketed to fame and fortune, the English hit parade has been topped by that figure out of the past, Elvis Presley. His “Crying in the Chapel” displaced Briton Sandie Shaw’s “long Live Love”, according to a recent weekly report, at the top of the pile.

The best The Beatles could do was take 24th place, with “Ticket to Ride”. The Beatles recent appearance on the queen’s birthday honors list, creating them members of the Order of the British Empire, cannot be expected to do much for their dwindled popularity. One teen-age girl, for example, said of The Beatles favor at the royal hand, “They’ve become respectable, and I don’t want anything to more to do with them.”

All along, of course, we knew that even The Beatles would have their day and be replaced. But we did not expect to see so ancient a figure as Elvis Presley rise to occupy the Beatles’ vacated throne – and in the Beatles home country! Isn’t anything certain any more, even the fickleness of addicts to popular records?

Elvis Presley and Mary Kathleen Selph  at the corner of South Parkway and Elvis Presley Blvd. in Memphis, Tennessee June 30, 1972. ID on Mary Kathleen Selph from her mother, Peggy Selph Cannon on Jan 5, 2000. Mrs. Cannon says her daughter was killed in an auto accident on July 18, 1972 at the age of 20.

Cannon says her daughter, Kathleen ‘Kathy’ Selph, then 20, was being driven home by Elvis when the picture was shot by a photographer for The Commercial Appeal in June 1972. A neighbor showed her the photograph in the newspaper that week, and Cannon says she ‘reprimanded’ her daughter for dating a married man. That’s when she learned that Elvis and Priscilla Presley had separated.

The daughter, who had moved out of her parents’ home, had been working as a dancer and singer at the old Whirlaway Club, where a member of Elvis’ Memphis Mafia noticed she resembled Priscilla Presley, says Selph’s brother, Steve. His sister and Elvis were introduced and dated for a while, he says.

This all was a big surprise, 50 years later, to Magdalene, when she heard about it. She commended: ” It was just a very sweet relationship. At that time, if you just held hands, it was very serious. And we did hold hands a lot”.
