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.

Finally, an advanced specialty training program in pediatric massage for healthcare professionals who wish to expand their practice by providing massage therapy and nurturing touch for babies born prematurely or with complex medial conditions. The Liddle Kidz® Foundation course is an intense, fun and effective way to master the core skills of massage and touch therapy for babies in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU).
Founded by master teacher and philanthropist Tina Allen, the Liddle Kidz® Foundation offers a new, comprehensive, research based training course and teaches students what they really need to know to become an advanced professional in the area of pediatric massage therapy.
Any experienced healthcare professional will tell you that there is a world of difference between learning how to massage a child from a book or DVD, and knowing how to provide the best care to meet a child and families needs, however, there are few opportunities to learn the skills they really need from a working healthcare professional who has provided infant and pediatric massage education throughout the world.
With specialized training for babies born early, you have the special opportunity to provide specialized care through touch therapy to children who need it most.
