Summary = Elvis Presley tops British music charts on BBC Television.
Body = By releasing Elvis Presley's 1959 classic song "One
Night" January 2005 Sony/BMG helped to secure the historic
1,000th Number One on the official British music chart for the world's
most loved singer, Elvis Presley.
It was broadcast on the chart show BBC1 radio, Sunday 16th January.
On hearing the news, Elvis fans were jubilant.
We eagerly looked
forward to the BBC's Top of the Pops television programme which
would copper fasten the amazing result by featuring Elvis's great
recording. Friday night 21st January 2005 the British Broadcasting
Company with appalling insensitivity used an Elvis Impersonator
to sing the song! Millions witnessed this insult to Elvis fans world-wide.
A case of total misrepresentation. Akin to a pub pianist being used
as a stand in for the great Russian Concert Pianist, Sviatoslav
Inadvertently the BBC has provided the late Elvis Presley with priceless
publicity. Elvis was number 1 AND number 10 on their music chart!
The already booming sales of his wonderful CDs are now sure to take
a quantum leap.
