Must be a slow news day at WTVR-TV in Richmond. Too bad they didn't mention it's being issued under the Follow That Dream imprint.

Dr. John. I'm from Richmond, and I thought it was a worthwhile story. Until the record store they interviewed only sells vinyl only. They didn't even know what FTD was, and yet WTVR interviews them and calls it a "limited release." Sloppy.

It's a fine story, but not something a respectable news organization slots into the evening cast, before the weather and sports. It's an entertainment piece.

So life would be better if Elvis was never mentioned on TV

Rubbish Doc. It is just not front "page" news today. Has to be added somewhere. They actually asked me via Troy for the trailer but there was no time even if we had it in a TV grade quality. As you can see Troy was involved in the story, I have not asked but I assume he put them on to the story. Good on him if he did

Great to see Elvis mentioned in the news with something quite positive. I believe it will be a great release by FTD.

Troy did a great job. I've never met the guy, in spite of living in the same city - I am now a member of his Mystery Train blog.

I'm more irked that WTVR interviewed Steady Sounds, as if they were going to carry it; and then when I emailed Steady Sounds they told me when it comes out on vinyl, they would have it. Troy knew what he was talking about, the Steady Sounds guy did not.

I enjoyed the five minute piece because a FTD release got mentioned, if not by name, but TV-6 acted like Steady Sounds was going to sell it; and they're not. Steady Sounds is across from the coliseum.

We need to try to get Troy on here. Add some local insight.

Good stuff. But it does make it more puzzling why this isn't being released as a proper, mainstream shop-sold CD.
