King-sized date for fans
HE has been dead for 36 years, but tributes to Elvis Presley have plenty of life left in them.
Fans and lookalikes of the rock'n'roll singer converged once again at the Porthcawl Elvis Festival over the weekend.
The event featured the best Elvis competition, a performance by the winner of last year's competition, Ben Thompson, and the Elvis gospel show.
Very much to the fore throughout were Porthcawl house band Red Alert.
Elvis Aaron Presley was born in Mississippi, on January 8, 1935. He has sold more than a billion records and starred in more than 30 films.
Bruce Springsteen said there have been a lot of contenders, but "there is only one king".
