Elvis Presley Voice Your Choice Christmas Edition

The King of Rock And Roll is front and centre this week on Treasure Island Oldies, as Elvis Presley is the artist in the spotlight on Voice Your Choice.

Elvis was born Elvis Aron Presley on January 8, 1935 in Tupelo, Mississippi. During his lifetime, which was sadly cut short when he died in Memphis, Tennessee on August 16, 1977, he appeared on the charts an unbelievable 153 times! Not only that, but he had 41 Top Ten hits between 1956 and 2002, including 24 Gold plus 21 Platinum Records. Here's an understatement: What an astonishing, astounding and outstanding achievement!

For the final Voice Your Choice of 2016, we spotlight Elvis with two of his many Christmas recordings. Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice page for either Here Comes Santa Claus (Right Down Santa Claus Lane) or White Christmas. I'll play the winner on next week's all-Christmas songs show.
