1956: Elvis Hits! But You Haven’t Seen Anything Yet!


Saturday, Jan. 28, 1956, this would mark the first time Elvis Presley would appear on national television!  He would appear on the Dorsey Brothers Show.  Still an unknown to the world,  Elvis did not draw a large studio audience.  He would perform 3 songs before the hosts ensured Elvis would be back the following week.


According to a service man who was in the audience the night on that fateful rainy night, “I often went on Saturday nights to the Dorsey brothers show and I was there when Elvis Presley made his national television debut on that show. I had never heard of him and was startled when he appeared on stage and hundreds of girls began screaming.”

That night was the night that changed the life of this young fella that could shake his hips and rock blue eye shadow on occasion.  Redefining how we think of pop stars,   Elvis left more than his mark on music and style history.   For anybody who knocks ‘The King’, we call you out, because this was a guy who knew what to wear, when to wear it, and ruled his time on earth.
