In the early 1980s, Shriners Hospitals for Children opened the nation's first spinal cord injury rehabilitation centers specifically designed for kids.

See something bigger than life . . . extra large statues of Elvis Presley and James Burton, a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame guitarist. Located in front of the Municipal Auditorium where they played together on the Louisiana Hayride.
Presley made what would be his only appearance on Nashville's Grand Ole Opry on October 2; after a polite audience response, Opry manager Jim Denny told Phillips that his singer was "not bad" but did not suit the program. Two weeks later, Presley was booked on Louisiana Hayride, the Opry's chief, and more adventurous, rival. The Shreveport-based show was broadcast to 198 radio stations in 28 states.
