Tarleton Thursdays: Did You Know?

Stephenville Recreation Hall
The November 12, 1957 J-TAC stated:

"Almost anytime of the day the Rec Hall juke box will be playing the number one hit tune of the day, You Send Me by Sam Cooke. This song seems to be the favorite. Running a close second is My Special Angel by Bobby Day. But the rock and roll fans are not left out completely. Elvis Presley has two new hit records out from his new movie Jailhouse Rock, the title tune and Treat Me Nice. Little Bitty Pretty One by Thurston Harris seems to be right on top with Presley's records. A great follow up to Bye, Bye Love by the Everly Brothers is Wake Up Little Susie. The tune is all the rage around Tarleton these days."

Did you know that Elvis Presley performed at the Stephenville Recreation Hall with the Blackwood Brothers the morning of July 4, 1955! After the concert in Stephenville, they performed in the afternoon in De Leon!
