The most popular disc jockey in Memphis was a close friend of Elvis Presley. George Klein had gone to Humes High School with Elvis and had worked for Elvis before Elvis went into the Army. He had been a radio personality and while Elvis was in Germany, George Klein gained in popularity and became the top disc jockey in Memphis. On his radio show, he went by DJ-GK.
Every kid in Memphis listened to DJ-GK. He played the best music, including Elvis music and he told stories about Elvis every once in awhile. Like all radio DJ's, DJ-GK would make personal appearances and broadcast from different public areas. The girls would swarm to the broadcasting site hoping for any Elvis crumbs. I was one of those girls.
DJ-GK appeared in Millington several times and I would head over to the broadcast site and just hang around. During the broadcast DJ-GK would talk to different kids while the music was playing. I tried but never gained his attention. I ended up just hanging around the radio sites listening to music and watching other girls throw themselves at DJ-GK.
DJ-GK maintained his friendship with Elvis throughout the years and continued to be a major radio personality in Memphis.
