Treasures from the KBOO Public Affairs Archive - Stephanie Pierce and the 24-Hour Church of Elvis
In 1991, the proprietor of Portland's 24-Hour Church of Elvis tried to participate in the Rose Festival. Stephanie Pierce was quickly judged to be out of compliance with "family values", and was banned from the festival. She came to the KBOO studios and told her story to Julie Bernard, host of Art Focus.
