Wink & Sandy Martindale are our guests as we continue our Elvis Celebration on Rockabilly N Blues Radio Hour. We recorded our conversation during a break at this year's Nashville Elvis Festival where Wink & Sandy were judges for the Elvis Tribute Artist contest. Wink Martindale is a legendary game show host, television producer and radio personality. He was also working at WHBQ in Memphis, TN and happened to be at the studio with Dewey Phillips the evening he first played Elvis Presley. Sandy Martindale has wonderful stories of dating Elvis, dancing in his movies and designing Elvis eye-wear. We'll hear about all of these stories and more! This is an episode you do NOT want to miss! Plus, we play Wink's "That Was Elvis To Me" narrative, a NEW song from Pokey LaFarge (who portrays Hank Snow in CMT's "Sun Records") and tunes from Janis Martin, Dale Watson and The Starlight Drifters!
