Elvis and Dewey - new to my eyes. Anyone knows when?

Anyone knows when this picture was taken or why? It's from a newspaper, does anyone know more?

Looks like 1957 (black hair) or am I wrong?

It appears they are at WHBQ Radio, and DJ Dewey Phillips is proudly holding a promo copy of Elvis' new single, "All Shook Up," released in late-March 1957. Elvis had just returned from California on March 18, having completed "Loving You" for Paramount Studios, and would leave for a new tour on March 27, starting in Chicago the next day.

My suspicion is that all of the Memphis shots of Elvis in the orange V-sweater are from this time frame. Note this photo in the Poplar Tunes record shop of Elvis sitting in a personalized director's chair, possibly a reference to his first starring movie role.
