All Elvis, All The Time. Elvis Radio: Guest Blogger

It’s amazing to think about how much has happened at Elvis Presley’s Graceland since 2004, when we began broadcasting LIVE from Graceland on SiriusXM’s Elvis Radio.  There are so many incredible memories, events and highlights with Elvis’ friends, musicians, family and especially with the millions of fans around the globe who love the King of Rock & Roll!

Let’s shine the spotlight on some of the most memorable, as birthday boy George Klein (October 8, 1935) would say, from the “World of Presley”!

  • Fans still marvel and talk about the “Elvis 30th Anniversary Concert” at FedExForum during Elvis Week 2007.  Hosted by Priscilla Presley and a surprise starring cameo from Lisa Marie Presley and her incredible LIVE duet performance with her dad of “In The Ghetto” with an inspirational gospel choir.  The energy in the air for Elvis Week, whether it was the Candlelight Vigil, the Insiders VIP’s or the “Elvis 30th Anniversary Concert” made it feel like the whole universe was revolving around Graceland and Memphis.
  • Priscilla Presley’s frequent LIVE visits on Elvis Radio over the years with Argo, Big Jim, and her long time buddy, George Klein.  As a matter of fact most recently on October 3, 2014, Priscilla spent almost 90 minutes one-on-one with George Klein as she was in town to be part of the Blues Ball’s salute to the “60th Anniversary Of That’s All Right Mama and Rock & Roll”.

  • Lisa Marie Presley’s birthday broadcast with Argo on February 1, 2012, when she announced she would be back to record and film songs from her Storm & Grace album at the legendary Sun Studio, where Elvis first recorded in downtown Memphis, and her return on May 14, 2012 to share her brand new release with Elvis fans around the world with Big Jim Sykes.

    Oh wow, such exciting events. I would have LOVED to be at Graceland when Lisa Marie was there. Elvis Radio is doing a fabulous job of keeping Elvis’ memory and music alive. It is the only channel I ever listen to. Keep up the good work!

    YES YES YES, I have Elvis radio in both cars. And believe me it’s all ELVIS all the time. Played Elvis Trivia several times (guest DJ once). Love all the DJs, especially Big Jim and Argo and of course GK. Proudly have the Sirius Elvis sticker that says ALL ELVIS ALL THE TIME on rear window. I hope it never stops as I gain a lot of knowledge of the Elvis World and Special Guest Speakers.

    This fan has adored Elvis Presley since I was 12 years old. Now I am retired and just visited Graceland with my daughter in 2011.

    Could I make a request? How does a Canadian find Elvis on Sirius radio? If possible to answer please email me.

    Thank you very much!

    I was listning to big Jim Sykes on my car xm radio l heard him talk about when Elvis went to Hawaii.he said that Elvis took the cruze line s.s. Lurline.l could not believe my ears .l have a menu from that ship it is from the year 1937 it has a very pretty cover of Hawaiian girls very tropical.l saved it .it means more to me now just to know that Elvis was on that same ship at one time.l held on to it just because I liked it. I have been a Elvis fan for years I saw him in 1972 in little rock,ar. He died on my birthday I will never forget. I love all his gospel I think that was the real Elvis I play it at night when I go to bed it.brings comfort to me calms my heart.
