On July 3rd, the Times would report the actual ratings:

N.B.C.-TV’s Steve Allen toppled C.B.S.-TV’s Ed Sullivan in the hotly contested 8 to 9 P. M. time period last Sunday. Mr. Allen, who featured Elvis Presley, singer, scored a Trendex rating of 20.2 as against Mr. Sullivan’s 14.8. The former attracted 55.3 per cent of the viewing audience and the latter drew 39.7 per cent. It was N.B.C.’s best showing since May 30, 1954. During the 1955-1956 season, N.B.C. surpassed Mr. Sullivan only three times.10

The show managed to beat out Sullivan’s in spite of the number of high profile guests that appeared that night which included John Huston, Jose Ferrer, Orson Welles, Lauren Bacall, Edward G. Robinson, Vincent Price, Burl Ives and even Gregory Peck reenacting scenes from his upcoming film “Moby Dick.”

The King earned $5,000 for the performance and headed for the studio the next day to record the song for a single release.

Following the Steve Allen show – Elvis returned to the Warwick Hotel where he appeared on the only national talk show interview of his life – Hy Gardner Calling.

Steve Allen would maintain that Elvis was in on the joke being made of him, and Elvis never got over it – even referring to it in 1969 Vegas concert return. That North vs South divide of America.

Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis ended their 10-year partnership after starring on radio, TV and in 16 feature films.

Memphis Police provide crowd control on the midway, as Elvis throws a ball to win Hearn a prize.

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.

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 Presley enjoyed his 15th UK #1 single with his rendition of “Crying In The Chapel”, which first became a hit for 17-year-old Darrell Glenn when it topped the Cashbox Best Sellers chart in 1953.

Amy Winehouse was booed by crowds in Serbia’s capital Belgrade after appearing to be too drunk to perform. The concert – the first on the singers 12-day European tour, saw Winehouse mumble her way through parts of songs, leave the stage altogether and at one point she threw her microphone to the floor. She was frequently booed by the crowd, who had paid up to £45 to see her in a country in which wages are some of the lowest in Europe.

June 5, 1954

The above receipt, dated June 9, 1954, was for a two-sided acetate recording made by Elvis Presley. Sun records studio was originally called Memphis Recording Service opening in January 16 1950

Elvis cut two sides (master 0914-A and 0914-B) on Saturday, 6/5, and picked up his acetate dub on Wednesday, 6/9. This documentation is likely for a song like, perhaps, Casual Love Affair.

Elvis Presley made his second appearance on Milton Berle’s Texaco Star Theatre, where his hip swinging gyrations during his performance of “Hound Dog” provoked howls of outrage.

They said I was a freak when I first hit, but I’m still around. Presley has no training at all. When he goes into something serious, a bigger kind of singing, we’ll find out if he is a singer. He has a natural, animalistic talent.”

Elvis was riding Rising Sun this afternoon, accommodating the fans for autographs. He was wearing a long sleeved, dark brown shirt, brown pants, a turquoise and silver belt, a long red scarf and white boots. Priscilla was also out riding Domino, and GeeGee on Willy.  The grounds were full of fans and Mr. Pepper kept blowing his whistle. Elvis laughingly said, “Mr. Pepper’s got that whistle caught in his throat, hasn’t he?” Elvis was in a great mood, laughing, joking acting silly and doing some of his impressions like Glen Campbell and Ray Stephens, saying “Let’s hear it for the monkey – Guitarzan.”  Elvis stayed out until after dark. Then he went to the Memphian.

He arrived at the Memphian wearing the same clothes he had been riding in.  The first movie was “Sams Whiskey” with a bird named Priscilla. When Angie Dickinson said, “Priscilla died” everyone, including Elvis and Priscilla, busted out laughing.  Elvis sang some during the movie, “This time We’re Really Breaking Up”,  and someone said “do you believe in magic? And Elvis started singing that song.  He also sang “Do You Know The Way to San Jose?”  The second movie was  “Eye of the Devil”. The evening ended at 3:15 am.

The Rolling Stones became the first artists to receive record royalties from the Soviet Union. Until the country’s copyright laws were changed, the Soviets had made no payment to any artist for work released or used in that country.

During recording sessions for Wish You Were Here at Abbey Road Studios, London, England, Syd Barrett turned up out of the blue as Pink Floyd were listening to playbacks of Shine On You Crazy Diamond — a song that happened to be about Barrett. By that time, the 29-year-old Barrett had shaved off all of his hair (including his eyebrows), become overweight, and his ex-bandmates did not at first recognise him. Barrett eventually left without saying goodbye, and none of the band members ever saw him again.

Pianist/composer Ludwig van Beethoven died at age 56. There is dispute about the cause of his death.
