Topic: "AN ALL ELVIS CHRISTMAS SHOW!"
Guest Co-Host: OMAR FARAG
Musical Guests: CODY RAY SLAUGHTER (performers on "The Elvis Tribute Artist Spectacular Holiday Show")
This year's annual Elvis Presley Tribute Artists Spectacular at Star Plaza Theatre happens on Saturday, December 2nd -- earlier than usual due to the closing of the venue, and as such, will showcase the King of Rock's holly, jolly Christmas spirit as Lakeshore Public Radio's audience hears some of the Presley's seasonal hits. See the attached concert flyer for more details.
On board for this special holiday program is the Elvis Presley Tribute Artists Spectacular founder and producer -- Omar Farag -- along with the show's Music Director/Band Leader DANNY LENTINO and the show's "Early Elvis," CODY RAY SLAUGHTER. The trio discuss this year's new theme which brings Elvis home for the holidays a final time to Star Plaza, where the now national production was first performed over 30 years ago.
