Colonel Parker was always keeping Elvis fresh in the minds of fans, especially during the holidays, when he would market special programs. In 1967, radio stations were supplied with the offered RCA Victor full-track 7 1/2 I.P.S. reel-to-reel complete program and script for Elvis’ Special Christmas Program, which was intended to be played on Sunday, December 3, 1967. Cleverly, the Colonel provided the stations with the complete broadcast, including announcements between songs. This reel-to-reel with original RCA label comes in its original box with insert script. This all-in-one marketing promotion was intended to be played on radio stations from coast to coast that Sunday, December 3 while Elvis is still in Las Vegas after the completion of filming for Stay Away, Joe. No one knew Elvis’ base better than the Colonel, and he thought that the best way to ring in the holiday season was with the King coming over the air waves directly into your home. The reel-to-reel box measures 7 1/2 by 7 1/4 by 3/4 inches (19.05 x 18.41 x 1.90 cm), the reel-to-reel measures 7 inches (17.78 cm) in diameter, the Christmas Program script measures 6 3/4 by 6 3/4 inches (17.14 x 17.14 cm), and this Christmas radio special collection is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.

Excellent condition overall with slight signs of toning and wear to the box.
