April 05 - Hall Of Fame

Four legendary Memphis radio personalities will be inducted into the Tennessee Radio Hall of Fame next month. Rick Dees, George Klein, Dewey Phillips and Rufus Thomas are among this year’s 16 inductees. Klein, known as being one of Elvis Presley’s closest friends, has spent the last 50 years on radio and television at several Memphis area stations. Phillips was the Mid-South’s most popular radio personality in the 1950′s — hosting his “Red, Hot and Blue Show” on WHBQ. He was also the first DJ to play an Elvis Presley record on the air. The Induction banquet will be held on May 4th at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Murfreesboro.
