KWKH radio announcer Frank Page introduced Elvis on his first radio broadcast from the Louisiana Hayride inside Shreveport, Louisiana’s Municiple Auditorium, October 16, 1954.
He left Memphis on a Friday night, October 15, 1954, after a gig at the Eagles Nest, driving all night with Sam Phillips, Scotty Moore and Bill Black. They missed the turnoff in Greenville, Mississippi, because of Bill Black’s clowning; later, Scotty Moore almost ran over a team of mules. Arriving in Shreveport the next morning, they checked into the Captain Shreve Hotel downtown.
