Elvis Presley : Gladewater, Texas. Ksij Radio, Mint Club : November 23, 1954
Elvis makes his first appearance in Gladewater, Texas.
The show is put on at the Mint Club by Tom Perryman, a local DJ, who will continue to book Elvis in the northeast Texas area well into the following year. Because newspaper ads either do not exist or simply have not been found, his earliest appearances in this region have yet to be precisely dated.
