  1. Had ocassion to drive through California much of May and listened to a lot of SXM .

    Heard a lot of the Oldies which included a lot of Elvis, I did not realize just how talented he really was . I especially enjoy his early stuff, real easily listening .

    Mystery Train is one of my favorites . Then listen/watch to the same song by Brian Setzer Live in Japan .
