Lamm began working as a television agent and radio show producer.
Lamm said it was easy to find fresh material for each magazine issue, with new tribute bands popping up, coverage of Elvis fan clubs and fan charity efforts, and lots of Elvis related events going on. And, he noted, there's an endless supply of photos of Elvis. "He was the most photographed person in the world," Lamm said.

Throughout the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s, Lamm's company, Creative Radio Network, produced many syndicated specials. In 1977, after Elvis died, radio station managers asked Lamm to produce a radio tribute show to Elvis. The result was a three hour special called, "Elvis Remembered." More radio shows on Elvis followed, and in 1988 Lamm produced a weekly program, "The Elvis Hour."
Lamm entered the publishing world in 1988 with a magazine he initially called the Elvis International Forum, while continuing to produce radio specials including, "The Elvis 15th Anniversary Radio Tribute" in 1992 and "The Elvis 20th Anniversary Radio Tribute" in 1997.

They bring in younger tribute artists for the younger people and they cater to younger music fans.

He teamed up with Clark in 1971 to launch the first radio talk show in syndication, the controversial Bill Ballance Feminine Forum.
