Wildcard: Elvis Costello


This #1 Post Modern smash turns into a Crossover phenomenon thanks to massive MTV airplay and a new love affair with Top 40. Paul McCartney's presence on this smash only enhances this veteran's first major mass appeal breakthrough. Early action at KXXR, WMMS, KPLZ, WZOU, KEGL, Y95, KUBE, WXKS, KROY and others. That's right, Elvis is king.



This week's Wildcard, Elvis Costello, scores big with another week of major market support and continued album sales. The Replacements continue to spread at Top 40 with a video in solid play. Neneh Cherry is closing quickly and pulling big phones and last week's Wildcard pick, Tom Petty, is moving with big out of the box action and a #1 Album/Rock base. Watch Bullet Boys — ready to explode!
