Bud Francis was the host of Memories of Elvis heard over Cruisin' 92.1, WVLT every Thursday evening from 9 pm to 10 pm from 2001 to Spring of 2004.

The first broadcast of "Memories Of Elvis" with Bud Francis occurred on Cruisin' 92.1, WVLT on Saturday night, September 22, 2001. Bud was filling in for the vacationing Skip Weisner and his Lost 45's radio show, heard Saturdays at 12 midnight on Cruisin' 92.1, WVLT.

Following this, Bud encountered several months of medical problems. On Tuesday, January 29, 2002 from 10 pm until 11 pm, "The Memoris of Elvis" program hit the Cruisin' 92.1 airwaves as an independent broadcast.

The format of "Memories Of Elvis" could really be called "the other side of Elvis". Bud likes to play the rare songs that most other radio stations don't and won't play. Each week, you can hear rehearsal and alternate takes. There's also songs Elvis performed live in concert. Plus, the show also includes other rare material.

Bud Francis is employed as an Avionics Project Engineer and has been with the same company for over 30 years now. However, Bud did not really become an avid Elvis fan until after Presley's death in 1977. Bud's interest was peaked in the late sixties when Elvis recorded several songs that would re-establish the Big E's career as a serious recording artist.

When asked what song was most responsible for attracting Bud's attention, he replied, "In The Ghetto." "It was so different and so unlike Elvis' previous songs," said Francis.
