Description: For his eighth birthday, Mark Alan Stamaty's parents gave him his very own radio. Little did his mother realize that that innocent-looking plastic box would one day be the gateway for a new kind of sound that would '€œrock' her nearly out of her mind... Mark first heard the howling thunder of Elvis Presley singing '€œHound Dog'€ on the radio one lazy day and his life was forever changed. Soon he was styling his hair like the King and practicing his dance moves with a tennis racket as his pretend guitar in front of the mirror. But his mother lived in constant fear that her son's new love of rock '€™n'€™ roll would turn him into a juvenile delinquent. Could Mark's performance at his Cub Scout talent show change her mind?
