    Description

    Elvis Presley Popular Tunes Poster. Giant framed photo print of Elvis with WHBQ deejay Dewey Phillips and co-founder of Poplar Tunes, Joe Coughi. Poplar Tunes (aka Pop Tunes), located at 308 Poplar, was always billed as "Memphis' Original Record Shop." It opened in 1946, and was the shop Elvis himself loved to shop at (and check the sales of his latest records). Dewey was, of course, the man who famously "broke" Elvis to the public by playing his first single, "That's Alright Mama" before anyone else, back when the young singer was still holding down a day job, driving a truck for Crown Electric. This vintage print of a circa 1957 photo (despite the "1953" notation) measures approximately 39.5" x 29.5", framed without glass for an overall size of 44.5" x 34.5", and is in Excellent condition. This legendary store closed its doors for good in 2009 -- memories (and photographs) are all that remain! From the Oshei Family Collection.
