Petitioning NBC

Honor the 50th Anniversary of Elvis Presley’s 1968 Comeback Special

On December 3, 1968, NBC aired what has since become known as Elvis Presley’s ’68 Comeback Special which was not only the most watched TV special that year, but also the catalyst for a rebirth in Elvis’ career and the motivating factor in his decision to return to performing in front of live audiences again after several years of making movies in Hollywood.

We are petitioning NBC to replay the unedited version of this special on the 50th Anniversary next December 3, 2018, in the same time slot of 9:00PM EST in honor of this historic television and cultural event.

This will not only be a great show of respect for the life and legacy of Elvis, but also a true thrill for his millions of fans around the world.

I thank my friend Debbie KF who took the below photo of an Elvis billboard in Canada.  Debbie thinks that Jesse may enjoy seeing that he is on a billboard in Canada currently.  I love seeing this too.

A friend to my site, Shawn K., wrote to bring something to my attention about the Federal badge which was on display at Graceland back during one of our visits from years ago.  I displayed a photo of this badge on my March Current News page.  Shawn wrote to say that this badge which we photographed at Graceland shows “retired” at the very bottom.  Shawn wonders when Elvis was issued a “retired” badge and if it could have been sometime AFTER Elvis left that image behind on August 16, 1977.  This is interesting as we all know that Elvis was still wearing his DEA STAFF logo jogging suit right up until the early morning hours of August 16, 1977 which, I think, meant that he was still active in that work at that time.

Below is an enlarged copy of our photo of the badge on display at Graceland and also a photo of his badge which President Nixon presented to him.

I thank Shawn for pointing out this interesting fact.

My good friend, Simon Laxon, has been so busy creating more wonderful video comparisons between the photo of Jesse and various photos of Elvis.  I love them all and appreciate Simon making these for all of us to enjoy.
