Elvis' BIG 1956 Show in Denver - Wanda Jackson, Faron Young

Don't know if this been posted here before. Think it's kinda neat to hear:

Elvis' BIG 1956 Show in Denver, with Wanda Jackson & Faron Young
Posted on YouTube by verycoolsound on April 23, 2011 already:
The 78 rpm pictured above contains this radio spot for the Elvis Presley BIG Show, Sunday, April 8, 1956. This incredibly rare commercial aired in March and early April, only on Denver stations. There is an extremely good chance you have never heard it before.

For newspaper ads on this show:

Nice related thread from FECC's Picture Section:
Who is the guy to the right of Faron Young?

More info about the tours with Elvis/Faron Young, from the book Live Fast, Love Hard: The Faron Young Story:

This April 1956 ad has popped up before, the first time posted on FECC was in 2012, by somebody:


It's pretty cool, and produced in my part of the work, Oakland, CA, much like the ad we have for the June 1956 show in Oakland.
