Victoria, Texas (AP) --
Horace Lee Logan, who started the country music program "Louisiana
Hayride" and first said what became the catch-phrase "Elvis has
left the building," died Sunday. He was 86.
Logan had pancreatitis and acute respiratory distress syndrome,
said his wife, Linda.
Logan began in radio when he was 16, after winning a contest to
become an announcer on KWKH-AM in Shreveport, La., Mrs. Logan said.
He began producing the Hayride, a country music show performed before
a live KWKH audience in Shreveport's Municipal Auditorium, in 1948.
It survived only two years after Logan's departure in 1958.
