On Monday August 15th WDVX-Radio hope to play a new recording of Elvis' concert performance from April 8, 1972 in Knoxville. The concert was part of the tour which was filmed by MGM for the movie, 'Elvis On Tour' and in honour of Elvis on the 34th anniversary of his death, WDVX-Radio will be dedicating a two hour live special devoted to the Kings music. The show is 'The Vinyl Frontier' and can be heard on-line and worldwide at www.wdvx.com. The Knoxville, Tennessee based WDVX will air the 'LIVE' show on Monday night from 9pm till 11pm with Hosts Bradley Reeves and Louisa Trott of the Tennessee Archive of Moving Image and Sound spinning those original vinyl records released during Elvis' lifetime.

During the show, they hope to play portions of the rare, never-before heard home tape recording of the April 8, 1972 Elvis Knoxville concert, provided the recording on the original cassette tape can be transferred from the tape. The recording has never surfaced. As this picture indicates, the concert was indeed at least partly filmed.
