wanted to perform. they knew i was a ham when i had the light on me. so this was the only way. >> what a good way it was. at just 14, elvis went from his closet to a small radio station in mckinney, texas, eventually moving on to san antonio, houston, houston, atlanta, philadelphia and finally landing here in new york. >> back in my days where i was getting kicked out of my apartment every month because i never paid the rent, new york called and said, we want to hire you. >> how about that phone call? >> it was the best. i'll never forget it. coming to new york and looking at the empire state building, i'm thinking, wow, this is great. i never take it for granted. >> something else elvis doesn't take for granted, his health, losing about 100 pounds after bear reat trick sleeve surgery p i did not realize how different you look now.
>> i don't recognize me when i see those pictures. >> did dr. oz play a little role in that? >> absolutely. >> why? what did he say? >> he looked at me and said, elvis, it possibly could kill you just as fast as or faster than some cancer. get in there and get it taken care of. i did as fast as possible. >> describe the difference between the husky elvis and the lean elvis, how you felt? >> well, the natural thing is, i don't sweat as much. i can wear clothes now and walk further distances without being out of breath. the internal important things are i knew i could eventually find a way to make myself feel better about myself. so i did it. >> he should feel good about himself. when it comes to the radio, there is almost nothing elvis hasn't done. in 2015, he was inducted into the national radio hall of fame. next year, elvis will receive a star on the legendary hollywood walk of fame. >> when do you think your
parents were the proudest of you, from the day you were born to as we are sitting right now? >> maybe an odd answer. i think they are most proud of me now and they are both deceased. how many times have you heard of people that really feel like they have done great things and you find out their parents passed away a year before? i really think. i know i feel them looking down on me and going, great job. good for you. >> that's so sweet. >> here is to you, elvis. >> we love our elvis. he will be here probably within a week. >> we love it. all right. easy fourth of july party hats to get you out of some sticky situations right after this. this is 100% useful for a 100% fresh mouth. what's it like to not feel 100% fresh? we don't know. we swish listerine®. as do listerine® users. the very people we studied in the study of bold. people who are statistically more likely to stand up to a bully.
