In this episode we discuss the life and times of the uncontested king of rock and roll, Elvis Presley. From humble beginnings in Mississippi and Tennessee, Elvis shot to superstardom in the 1950s. More than 60 years later, he’s still a household name. Although his life was tragically short, he lives on in the memories of his fans - some of whom dedicated shrines to him.
Our guest is Ray Connolly, the author of ‘Being Elvis: A Lonely Life’. Ray, a veteran music journalist, was one of the only reporters to interview the star, who many people heard and saw, but few truly knew.
