The MJ Show #85 (Elvis - Aloha From Hawaii - NBC TV Special April 4, 1973)

I'm a MASSIVE Elvis fan...and two DVD Box Sets I really wanted to have were the "68 Comeback Special Box Set" and the "Aloha From Hawaii" box set.
I already shared the 68 Comeback Special with you in Episode 42 of The MJ Show (Click on the link if you've not seen it already) and exactly 42 episodes after that I have the joy of sharing the other incredible concert dvd with you!

What I have for you tonight is something that shows you the power...the energy...the charisma...the charm...the magic that was Elvis Presley.
I've always said this. When he was on could not get your eyes off him. Don't believe me...then watch this concert that I have for you.
And for the love of God, music and all that is good...go out and buy yourself a copy of this box set. What I've given you here tonight is just a small portion of what's on the box set.
Here's how it looks:

This show was dedicated to Arjun Sankalia and Sony Music India! :) Thank you guys for making this available in India! You rock! :D

On a different note, The MJ Show was featured in DNA After Hours (27th April 2010).
In case you missed that article. Here's what it looked like:

The article was written by Suparna Thombare who I think has done a fab job of letting people know just what The MJ Show is all about :)

Also if you saw the header of the site I'm sure you would have noticed the incredibly cool "Musicman" Mihir logo on it. Have a look at how it looks in colour and black and white.
The logo was designed by my friend Vishal Bharadwaj and I think he has done an absolutely brilliant job of capturing the two things I am extremely passionate about...the two things that kinda got together and helped me choose the name "Musicman" about 6 years ago when I began radio.
Superman and Music. The logo is a beautiful tribute to both these elements.
Do let Vishal and me know what you feel about the logo in the comments here!

So's show had a LOT in it eh? :) An Elvis concert, an article in the DNA and a brand new logo! Full fun! :D

Right is now time for me to say...take care...and Good Night! :)
This is your Musicman Mihir...signing off!
