The program, which is being sponsored by Presley and Colonel Parker, his manager, also has an open time period for local charity plugs.

Trade and consumer ads by Victor on the album will support the saturation programming. Ad mats of 600 lines on the new album, with space for local copy, are being made available for local and regional advertising to tie in with the Palm Sunday broadcasts.
